This habitat report card is part of a 2013 project that performed a broad-scale evaluation of the vulnerability of Skeena salmon Conservation Units (CUs) to regional habitat threats and pressures.
The project produced individual habitat report cards for each CU to summarize the location and intensity of pressures on migration, spawning and rearing habitats. This supplementary ‘Skeena River Basin’ report card shows additional habitat information that cannot be clearly associated with an individual CU, including:
- Historical and future climate (precipitation and air temperature)
- Summer stream flows
- Glacier loss
- Snow pack monitoring data
More information about this project can be found here, including links to all report cards, an interactive online map, and a report that describes the full methods and results.
