Description

Editors: Kelly Munkittrick, Mark McMaster, Glen Van Der Kraak, Cam Portt, Wade Gibbons, Andrea Farwell, Michelle Gray

Filling a void in assessing the impacts of stresses on aquatic ecosystems, this book uses the performance of fish in a watershed to indicate areas in which performance is compromised by existing conditions. This effects-based approach allows the resident fish to integrate the existing stressors, giving insight into the factors that affect system performance and providing a focus for future risk assessments.

The authors describe the methodology and philosophy behind the approach and propose an interpretation framework for decision-making that focuses on sustainability and acceptability of changes, rather than on the traditional impact assessment.
