This report describes the methods and results of a project to develop snapshots of the status of 22 salmon Conservation Units on in the Nass Region. These snapshots of salmon status summarize the best available data for describing the dynamics and characteristics of Nass salmon populations. This project was a collaboration between the Pacific Salmon Foundation, the Nisga’a, Gitanyow, and Gitxsan First Nations, LGL Limited, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The report provides a high-level summary of project results. Full results for each Conservation Unit can be found on the Pacific Salmon Explorer, an online data visualization tool developed by the Pacific Salmon Foundation.
