Object Description

Object Name: REG_LAND_AND_NATURAL_RESOURCE.FISH_MUSSEL_HAB_ZONES_OK_SP

Short Name: MSSL_HAB_Z
Comments: Freshwater Mussel 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 Rocky Mountain Ridge Mussel location data.
