Some of:these log jams, at times, did block salmon migration to their spawning habitat upstream, but most did not prevent salmon or steelhead from passing them. In fact, log jams provide essential components of fish habitat, and their removal can alter stream channels, significantly degrading fish habitat (Beschta , Bilby ). However. Some studies have indicated that smell is a factor that enables a salmon to hone into the stream it was born in. Other studies indicate that the brain of the salmon is sensitive to the magnetic field of the earth and that this may be a factor in the homing instinct.

When migrating salmon enter a stream their normal body functions (urination) cause increases in nitrogen in the form of ammonium. Once they spawn, die and begin decomposing, nutrients contained in their bodies are released into the water causing increases in nitrogen in the forms of nitrate and ammonium. A log jam is an accumulation of large wood (commonly defined as pieces of wood more than 10 cm (4 in) in diameter and more than 1 m (3 ft 3 in) long also commonly called large woody debris) that can span an entire stream or river channel.. Historically in North America, large "log rafts" were common across the continent prior to European settlement.

Twenty engineered log jams (approximately pieces of large wood) were constructed along the mainstem channel and within the new side channels.
The log jams reduce water velocity in the side sloughs during flooding, provide spawning and rearing cover, protection and a nutrient supply for fish and aquatic invertebrates, and.
Introduction Timber harvest may have both direct and indirect effects on salmon, and with a few exceptions those effects result in lowered survival of salmon in their stream habitats compared with unlogged forest (Hicks et al.
Some impacts may be seen immediately or shortly after logging, whereas others can take decades to be Size: 1MB. The gross effects of salmon spawning on the streams appear to be: the loss of instream macrophytes, algae and mosses, a loss of fines and detritus, and a modification of the pool-riffle character.
Redd excavation may be associated with a reduction in benthic standing crop of up to %, with only a minor effect on the benthic community by: Influence of water temperature on Chinook salmon spawning and egg incubation: • Upstream migration will cease if temperatures are below ˚C or above 20 ˚C.
• The majority of spawning occurs between 6 ˚C and 15 ˚C. • The optimal temperature range for egg survival is 8 ˚C to 12 ˚C. the study were to: (1) test a reach-scale scour and fill model (Haschenburger ) based.

large cobble to gravel. Spawning of several species of salmonids, including Chinook, chum, coho and steelhead has been observed in the vicinity of ELJs. Biological results indicate that ELJs have a measurable and significant effect on primary productivity.
Spawning habitat utilized by Atlantic Salmon (Salmon salar) and Sea Trout (Salmo trutta) was characterized in a km reach of the Newmills Burn, a small, highly canalized tributary of the River Don in Newmills Burn is typical of the intensively farmed lower sub-catchments of the major salmon rivers on the east coast of by: A pristine riparian zone, unaltered by human activities, enhanced salmon spawning and rearing by)1) shading the stream and maintaining low water temperatures, (2) contributing coarse woody debris to provide cover and in-stream habitat heterogeneity, (3) filtering sediment and pollutants from runoff waters, and (4) producing many forms of.
Log jams can provide habitat complexity, provide cover, trap sediment, and stabilize eroding banks, recreating conditions under which anadromous salmonids adapted over thousands of years.
They can also accelerate erosion, impair fish passage, and have other deleterious effects. Log jams are best evaluated for passability and overall ecological. Floods wash trees and logs into log jams that form critical habitat for fish.
The scouring effect of floods creates pools that provide juvenile rearing and adult holding habitat. On the flip side, high flood flows increase water depth and velocity, which sours the river bed, washing away redds, eggs, and pre-emergent fry that may be in the wrong place. Log jams, boulders, and enormous tree stumps break up the flow of a river, creating swift chutes, back eddies, and deep pools in close proximity to one another.
Here, a fish can belly up to the border between low speed water and swift currents, darting out to snatch insect prey drifting downstream, then retreating to rest and digest.

Weirs and the Backwards Ways that Rivers Work One of my favourite sayings on river restoration is a mangled quote from a movie ” boxing is an unnatural hing in boxing is backwards: sometimes the best way to deliver a punch is to step backwards but step back too far and you ain’t fighting at all”.
Earlier flooding means that eggs already deposited could be washed away. Higher, stronger water also makes it more difficult for the salmon to reach spawning grounds because the fish use more energy to fight the current. In such events, expending that energy may mean not enough energy remains to spawn.

Sometimes, the huge cut logs would form jams (bottom left), but these were dispersed as quickly as possible to get the wood downstream to market. As part of that effort, he struck the bottom of an artificial, rocky stream bed with a metal spatula in order to mimic the effects of a salmon's fin.
He was then able to construct artificial redds and make measurements of water and sediment flow. Salmon create significant changes to the stream bed. SKAGIT RIVER LARGE WOODY DEBRIS ASSESSMENT salmon spawning in a stream in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Each log jam needs to be assessed to see whether it is actually a barrier to fish movement before full-scale removal is enacted. Of course, the extent of.
