BackgroundPuget Sound is important for nesting, wintering, and migration of numerous bird species associated with the marine environment. More than 70 bird species regularly utilize Puget Sound during some or all stages of their life histories (Gaydos and Pearson ), but only a portion of these are actively being investigated. Studies have focused primarily on abundance . Waterfront West is the first and only marketplace dedicated exclusively to buyers and sellers of waterfront and water view real estate in British Columbia. Advertising Realtors’ listings, private sales and developments, we are pioneering the market for this prime real estate. Featuring private and brokered sales, waterfront developments and a complimentary Buyers’ Club.   Hay DE, McCarter PB, Kronlund R, Roy C () Spawning areas of British Columbia herring: a review, geographical analysis and classification.

Each winter and spring, researchers survey the sometimes spectacular spawning events of Puget Sound's Pacific herring. They have found wide swings in the fish's population and an overall decline in herring numbers since the s, but little is known about the cause or what this might mean for the health of the food web. A discussion about Indigenous economies, governance, and laws begins with relationships. These relationships are centered in a place, a traditional territory, and include responsi. We documented the movement and distribution patterns of wintering Surf Scoters (Melanitta perspicillata) and White-winged Scoters (Melanitta fusca) in relation to herring spawn events in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia. Radio-telemetry and surveys were conducted in Baynes Sound, an important wintering area where scoters feed primarily on clams.
