Abstract: The Stream Habitat Assessment (SHA) project is intended to provide basic habitat information for evaluating candidate lands under the Habitat Protection process of the oil spill restoration program. Candidate lands are nominated by landowners, agencies, and the general public for additional habitat protection or acquisition using Exxon Valdez settlement funds. Habitats that are of potential importance to salmon and Harlequin ducks will be surveyed and documented. Surveys are intended to focus on private lands that are scheduled for logging or other types of major habitat alterations.

Potential sites will be selected and surveyed. Streams will be surveyed after spawning has begun. Information will be entered into a Geographic Information System (GIS), and will be used to assist in the analysis and identification of key habitats throughout the spill affected area.
