- Interactive maps displaying the risk of degradation to freshwater salmon habitats from multiple human and environmental pressures;
- Summary information related to the biological status of salmon populations;
- Maps showing the location of both existing and proposed resource development projects that may overlap with salmon habitat;
- Summary reports for geographically and genetically distinct populations of salmon (known as Conservation Units under Canada’s Wild Salmon Policy);
- Ability to download source datasets and print maps and figures.
