Updated data for Haida Gwaii salmon are now available on the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s online data visualization tool, the Pacific Salmon Explorer. These updates include four new years of data (2018–2021) for spawner surveys, spawner abundance, catch and run size, and biological status. 

Haida Gwaii data were initially released on the Pacific Salmon Explorer in December 2021, after two years of collaboration with the Haida Nation and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. At the time of release, data and assessments were current to 2017. We have recently updated all analyses with data to 2021 and have re-assessed the biological status of all salmon Conservation Units (CUs) on Haida Gwaii.

In this 4-page update, we summarize changes in biological status by species and CU.
