This dataset contains the open access data and reports for the FIMP survey carried out in Moyie Lake in 2020. Moyie Lake, located in the Purcell Mountains in BC, is a unique “kettle pond” lake, the result of a depression created at the outflow of a glacier. The lake consists of 37.6 km of shoreline with a north and south basin connected by a ecologically productive narrows region in the middle. Moyie Lake is a recreation destination that has seen an increase in recreational property development in recent years.
