This report is a collection of 22 map-based habitat report cards, one for each salmon Conservation Unit (CU) in the Nass Area. These report cards are the product of a broad-scale evaluation of the current extent and intensity of pressures on salmon spawning, rearing, and migratory habitats as well as the cumulative risks to these habitats. This type of coarse-scale assessment is useful for building a common understanding of the degree of stress to key salmon habitats and for identifying strategies for alleviating those stresses.
