Sundre Forest Products, a Division of West Fraser Mills Ltd., is a founding industry partner in ACA fishery inventories, supporting various projects since 1998. Through inventory field work, ACA biologists collect critical information on fish abundance, species distribution, and fish habitat—vital data for land and species management.
Sundre Forest Products is currently supporting inventory field work in the Red Deer River watershed, enabling ACA to collect information on the distribution and abundance of bull trout, a native sport species classified as Threatened in Alberta.
“We always appreciate support from our partners,” says Mike Rodtka, Fisheries Biologist with ACA “but it’s rare for the connection between data gathering and conservation to be so direct; I know Sundre Forest Products uses our data to conserve fish habitat.“
