Kokanee habitat zones for Okanagan region lakes. The purpose of this data is to support the Large Lakes Protocol, an interagency document that addresses the processes that need to be followed during foreshore development. The required application process varies depending on habitat value zone. The data was sourced from Kokanee Shore spawner inventory data

Object Description

Object Name: REG_LAND_AND_NATURAL_RESOURCE.FISH_KOKANEE_HAB_ZONES_OK_SP

Short Name: KOK_HAB_ZN
Comments: Shore Spawning Kokanee Sensitivity Zones for Okanagan large lakes. The purpose of these data are to support the Okanagan Large Lakes Foreshore Protocol, which provides direction to proponents and qualified professionals on requirements for provincial natural resource applications based on the environmental sensitivity of a site and the risk of the foreshore development activity. The data were sourced from annual shore spawning kokanee surveys.
