(ACME) 9310-70a Ave., Grande Prairie, AB Phone: 780-380-1468 Website: http://ca.linkedin.com/in/acmegrandeprairie/ Report written for the Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance, the Wapiti River Water Management Plan Environmental Sub-committee and the Peace Country Fly fishers Association Survey Information The survey was developed by ACME and linked to a web based program called Survey Monkey. The survey was placed online at the Facebook social media website around 4 pm on February 16, 2014. The survey was closed midnight on February 25th, 2014. Thirty people participated in the survey and twenty nine of the respondents answered each question. People were asked to provide their names, emails, general home location and other demographic information for the survey. The personal information of the respondents (Questions 1 and 2) were excluded from this report for privacy. The survey questions were edited and reviewed by the President of the Peace Country Fly fishers Association, Jim Epp. I wish to thank him for his time and efforts in working with me on this small project. There were several purposes to the survey. Most notably to gather information on the types of fish in the local WapitiSmokey River Watershed for the Wapiti River Water Management Plan Environmental Subcommittee as requested by Adam Norris of the Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance. Additional questions were asked of recreational fisher’s to learn more about the group and their personal use-of and personal value of the river and/or watershed as a local fishing resource. The survey has been developed and compiled in an unpaid volunteer capacity as part of the ongoing business mission of ACME to support local initiatives. ACME accepts no liability for the content of the report or online survey, nor for consequences of any actions taken on the basis of the information provided as is to the public.
