A guide to understanding and using the project selection and priority ranking tool

Description

As part of the government's response to the June 2013 flooding in Southern Alberta, the Southern Alberta Fisheries Habitat Enhancement and Sustainability (FISHES) Program was established with the aim of mitigating the flood-related effects on fish and fish habitat in the short term and to re-establish a healthy aquatic environment over the longer term. In the absence of an existing process, a number of new tools were developed by the FISHES Program to support effective decision making and the allocation of program funds. The Project Selection and Priority Ranking Tool was developed to help evaluate potential projects based on thirteen biological, social and economic criteria which are weighted to reflect both provincial fisheries management priorities and local fisheries issues and concerns.
