Living Lakes Canada delivers CABIN training in Smithers
Thanks to our Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Network (CABIN) field practicum participants in Smithers, B.C.! What a great couple days in October in the streams with representatives from Gitxsan Environmental Services, Gitanyow Fisheries Authority, Wetsuweten Fisheries, Skeena Fisheries, Lake Babine Fisheries and Eclipse Geomatics.
A big thank you to Donald Baird from Environment and Climate Change Canada and University of New Brunswick for helping us out with the course and teaching us about eDNA.
Living Lakes Canada is trained by Environment and Climate Change Canada to train community groups, professionals, industry and First Nation communities in the CABIN methodology, the established national protocol in Canada that collects benthic macroinvertebrates and uses their counts as an indicator of a water body’s health.
