The Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Salmon Watersheds Program is working to help foster healthy, diverse and abundant wild salmon populations throughout British Columbia.

The Salmon Watersheds Program works to strengthen the baseline of scientific information available for wild Pacific salmon populations and their habitats. We strive to make this information broadly accessible to federal, provincial and First Nations governments, industry, environmental stewards, and others that have an interest in the conservation and long-term sustainability of Pacific salmon and the watersheds that support them.

While our activities specifically support the technical aspects of salmon conservation and management, we recognize that the manner in which these aspects are understood and put into action will affect the environmental, cultural, and economic benefits of salmon to local communities across the Province.

On this website you can link to our projects and activities, access background scientific and technical documents, and download baseline data sets relevant to Pacific salmon populations and their freshwater and estuarine habitats.
