Skeena Salmon Habitat Report Cards: Chinook, Coho, Pink, Chum, and River Sockeye Salmon

Description

This project presents a broad-scale evaluation of the relative vulnerability of Skeena Chinook, coho, pink, chum, and river-type sockeye salmon to regional habitat threats and pressures. This project builds on a previous Skeena Salmon Program project to assess lake-type sockeye habitat. The methodology is similar to the approach recently employed by DFO for southern BC Chinook, but modified to make the best use of data available for Skeena salmon.

The products of this project include:
