In 2005, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) adopted Canada’s Policy for the Conservation of Wild Salmon Policy (the WSP) (DFO 2005). Implementation of the WSP consists of six strategies, the first of which requires the standardized monitoring of wild salmon status. Standardized monitoring begins with the identification of species-specific Conservation Units or CUs. The CUs serve two roles under the WSP. First, each CU is, in some sense, a significant element of biodiversity that the WSP seeks to conserve and manage. Second, each CU is a unit for reporting on the success (or failure) of actions taken under the WSP to conserve wild Pacific salmon. Subsequent steps in the Policy’s implementation, including...

The Oregon Fish Passage Barrier Data Standard (OFPBDS) dataset contains barriers to fish passage in Oregon watercourses. Barriers include the following types of natural or artificial structures: bridges, cascades, culverts, dams, debris jams, fords, natural falls, tide gates, and weirs. The OFPBDS dataset does not include structures which are not associated with in-stream features (such as dikes, levees or berms). Barriers are structures which do, or potentially may, impede fish movement and migration. Barriers can be known to cause complete or partial blockage to fish passage, or they can be completely passable, or they may have an unknown passage status. The third publication of the OFPBDS dataset (Version 3)...

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game's (ADF&G) Anadromous water bodies data is derived from the ADF&G's GIS shape files for the "Catalog of Waters Important for Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" (referred to as the "Catalog") and the "Atlas to the Catalog of Waters Important for Spawning, Rearing or Migration of Anadromous Fishes" (referred to as the "Atlas"). It is produced for general visual reference and to aid users in generating various natural resource analyses and products. The shape files depict the known anadromous fish bearing lakes and streams within Alaska (from the mouth to the known upper extent of species usage). It incorporates data from a variety of sources including:...

This dataset contains the 2012 version of the anadromous fish streams (polylines) for Southeast Alaska and is pull from the Anadromous Waters Catalog.

Here we describe one conservation tool that will help to identify particularly significant river basins of the North Pacific for the conservation of salmon: the first Pacific-Rim wide assessment of salmon populations at a consistent scale. In conjunction with a scientific advisory panel and a peer review workshop we developed four criteria for the Pacific Salmon Conservation Assessment (PSCA) to provide an indication of aquatic ecosystem and salmon population resilience at the basin scale. These criteria are salmon abundance, diversity, hatchery influence, and landscape suitability. Highly abundant salmon populations have more “cushion” with which to absorb anthropogenic or natural disturbance (Quigley and...
The NPR basins were ranked according to regional patterns of environmental stress for salmon under current and projected future (to 2100) climate conditions. The basin rankings account for the relative abundance and distribution of freshwater habitats in each basin and include dynamic river flow and temperature simulations as indicators of water quality. A salmon stress index was developed based on temperature thresholds for spawning, incubation, and rearing for individual salmon species. The salmon stress ranking was coupled with the sub-watershed physical complexity ranking to develop a watershed vulnerability index for individual salmon species. Chinook and Coho rankings are highlighted below Each variable was...

Across the Pacific Northwest, both public and private agents are working to improve riverine habitat for a variety of reasons, including improving conditions for threatened and endangered salmon. These projects are moving forward with little or no knowledge of specific linkages between restoration actions and the responses of target species. Targeted effectiveness monitoring of these actions is required to redress this lack of mechanistic understanding, but such monitoring is in turn dependant on detailed restoration information; i.e. implementation monitoring. We assembled a database of restoration projects intended to improve stream and river habitat throughout the Pacific Northwest. The database was designed...

These data are intended for use in a variety of applications where fish distribution and activity is important. Note that the StreamNet database contains distribution information for numerous species. Within the source database, overlap does not exist for a particular species/run/subrun combination. See information under the spatial process log for specific information regarding the query that was used to construct this particular feature class.

State of the Salmon GIS staff appended, cleaned, and clipped the basins to the North Pacific extent area. This coverage was then edited, by manual digitizing, checking accuracy against a 1:1,000,000 streams coverage, digital elevation models, and 4th field watershed boundaries where available. This process mostly entailed eliminating erroneous inclusion and exclusion of upper stream reaches within Hydro1k boundaries. When more detailed streams were consulted in the Pacific Northwest, Hydro1k basins could have been refined further and were in the cases when it affected distribution of salmonids at the time of processing (Summer 2004). This finer resolution stream data was not used extensively to maintain a consistent...
