Bellevue Spawner Surveys
City of Bellevue Utilities
An assessment of fish habitat preference and population abundance from 2002 through 2009 enabled the City of Bellevue to prioritize conservation efforts, ascertain trends, and classify fish use areas. Fisheries biologists completed weekly stream surveys along Kelsey Creek and its tributaries each fall and winter. Consistent methodology and field staff ensured quality data collection. Reports detailed species composition, abundance, timing, and distribution of spawning salmonids.
