Revised Recovery Strategy for the Nooksack Dace (Rhinichthys cataractae) in Canada [Proposed]

Appendix 2 -Watershed Scale Maps

Appendix 2 -Watershed Scale Maps


This appendix includes the GIS watershed maps from which most of the data assessing riparian critical habitat (RCH) were generated. Table 2.1 describes the three categories of maps provided for each of the watersheds included in the study. 

Table 2.1: Contents of the maps of each watershed included in this appendix.


Critical habitat reaches•   Critical habitat reaches for Nooksack dace.
Riparian critical habitat (RCH)

•   Width categories of RCH: the calculated width of native vegetation necessary to maintain full riparian function in each reach. Categories are in 5 m increments ranging from 5 m to 30 m.

•   Portions of bank where RCH width is restricted by permanent structures.

Existing riparian vegetation•   Width categories of existing riparian vegetation as defined in the document.
