This class covers the principles of salmonid biology (including life cycles, ecological needs at various life stages, etc.) and introduces the audience to freshwater habitat components that are key to the survival of native species of freshwater fish, with particular emphasis on salmonids and lamprey. The roles of riparian vegetation on fish habitat creation are explored and management options for riparian forests are discussed.
