This report describes the methods and results of a broad-scale evaluation of the relative vulnerability of Skeena Chinook, coho, pink, chum, and river-type sockeye salmon to regional habitat threats and pressures. The project produced an individual map-based habitat report card for each Conservation Unit (CU) to summarize the location and intensity of pressures on migration, spawning, rearing, and egg incubation habitats.
More information about the project can be found here, including links to supplementary report cards for the Skeena Estuary and Skeena River Basin, and an interactive online map.
