Squamish Streamkeepers Update May24/09
Saturday, May 23 the Squamish Streamkeepers helped Edith Tobe’s team tie up 1800 eelgrass implants that divers then inserted into the bottom of the Mamquam Blind Channel. The divers reported that last years planting had grown over 6 feet in length and had filled in the area that had been planted. They also noticed a marked increase in crab and fish life in the areas planted. Recovery of the eelgrass beds, which were throughout the Mamquam Blind Channel in the not very distant past, should help provide more herring spawning area in the future.
