  • Description:
    This report is a summary of the results of phase II of a study sponsored by the City and Borough of Sitka. Phase II's goals were to: "1. Evaluate and map individual streams and lakes along the 15 mile Sitka road system to delineate fish species, spawning areas, and other sensitive habitat areas; identify adjacent land and water use practices that affect fish and wildlife habitat; and make recommendations for maintaining or enhancing specific stream and lake habitats within the Sitka "urban" area. 2. Evaluate and map coastal wewtlands and tidal flats to delineate important habitat uses for birds and other wildlife. Document past and present impacts to wetland habitats and make recommendations for the conservation of important wetland habitats. 3. Identify and characterize waterfront marine habitats including estuaries, tidal flats, rocky shores, and man-made structures. Describe and document the biological and physical components of these habitats and develop a management system for these areas based upon their relative sensitivities to various types of waterfront development."--Leaves 3-4.
