"In December 1987, G.L. Williams and Associates Ltd. was awarded a contract as a result of an unsolicited proposal to develop a marine foreshore on-site habitat description and assessment evaluation manual for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The unsolicited proposal was funded by the Unsolicited Proposals Program, Department of Supply and Services, Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Environment Canada, Parks. The overall objective of the work was to develop practical, consistent and ecologically based procedures to guide habitat biologists, fisheries officers and other field staff who routinely conduct habitat assessments and evaluations as part of the development project referral process. The work has resulted in four main components:· species/habitat outlines for 49 species important to the commercial, sport and Native fisheries, habitat description procedures manual, habitat evaluation, procedures manual, and a species/habitat references appendix."--Preface.
