Fisheries and Oceans Canada, aboard the research trawler, WE Ricker, recently conducted a midwater trawling cruise, a net drag through Howe Sound looking for salmon at all life stages. What they found were large quantities of herring that were recently hatched, 1 year of age and 2 years of age as well as numbers of hake.
This recent Fisheries and Oceans Canada research found older herring opposite Bowen Island, as well as a high density of two-year old herring in surface waters up by Squamish. One-year old herring were abundant in Ramilles Channel, North of Anvil Island, and under yearling (young-of-the-year) herring were caught everywhere at shallow depths. A surprise finding, in addition to herring, juvenile hake were spotted in abundance at greater depths of the Squamish Reach, north of Porteau.
Twenty years ago, most of the waste produced in Metro Vancouver was burned or buried. There were blue bins in some households, but most garbage went straight to the landfill in Delta or the incinerator in Burnaby. With the population of our region set to rise dramatically, residents believed this needed to change.
In the 1990 Urban Futures Survey, that’s just what they said. Residents ranked garbage recycling as one of the most important issues facing Greater Vancouver — higher than crime, tax rates and even affordable housing. Decision makers responded to popular opinion, and by 2001 we recycled half what we threw out. Today, it’s even more.
Now, the Urban Futures Survey is on again. The 2012 Metro Vancouver Urban Futures Survey gives residents a voice in the planning of our region. It is the third in a series of studies that impacted the decisions that make Greater Vancouver what it is today.
