 Understand temporal and spatial extent of usable fish habitat to maintain acceptable levels

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-4109

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Understand temporal and spatial extent of usable fish habitat to maintain acceptable levels.

Theme:

ON 4.1: Environmental monitoring - Baseline historic mapping of environment and ecosystems

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.03 - Canada

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Regulatory requirement to ensure maintain fish habitat. Requires baseline mapping and modelling to determine instream flow needs and the acceptable amount of water withdrawal.

 

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Need to manage environmental and social risks related to development.  Reduce development impact on aquatic habitats.

Thematic information requirements:

Distribution of habitat and biodiversity

Water quantity

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Stream and river discharge monitoring. Modelling of fish habitat and instream flow needs based on available data.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Extensive hydrometric monitoring and modelling.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Spatial information on river morphology from EO to support modelling.
