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 first of six strategies in Canada’s Policy for the Conservation of Wild Pacific Salmon concerns the identification of units of diversity (called Conservation Units) and determining their conservation status. The primary purpose of this document is to describe the method that was developed to identify the Conservation Units for the five species of Pacific salmon in British Columbia. The description of units in most of the Yukon and Northwest Territories will proceed using this method once the ecotypology of those areas is completed.The approach of Waples et al. (2005, Journal of Fish Biology, volume 59, pages 1-41) was modified to characterize diversity in Pacific salmon along three major axes: ecology, life...

Derived from: Wild Salmon Center. 2008. Pacific Salmon Conservation Assessment: Vector digital data. Portland, OR: Wild Salmon Center. The PSCA dataset represents a synthesis of the best available data and salmon abundance models as of 2007.  These data should be used at the scale of the range of Pacific Salmon. This database has not been formally assessed for its accuracy.  Based upon expert opinion and validation with the literature, the PSCA database accurately represents broad, range-wide patterns of salmon abundance and diversity.  Much of the data, particularly in the Russian Far East, is based upon modeling.  Refer to Pinsky et al (2009) for a complete summary of methods and data quality. Pinsky, M....

Species occurrence data were obtained from the Atlas of Spawning and Nursery Areas of Great Lakes Fishes (Goodyear et al. 1982). The atlas contains information on all of the commercially and recreationally important species that use the tributaries, littoral and open-water areas of the Great Lakes as spawning and nursery habitats. Close to 9500 geo-referenced data records (occurrences of fish species) were imported into ArcView GIS. The 139 fish taxa reported in the Atlas had to be grouped into fewer broad categories to produce meaningful distribution maps. We chose three functional classification schemes. Jude and Pappas (1992) used Correspondence Analysis to partition fish species associated with the open...

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...

At the request of the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership, the Wild Salmon Center has been working with scientists across the Northwest to identify a network of watersheds important to the long term survival of salmon and steelhead. The network has been selected based on biological criteria; from this network, the Stronghold Partnership will identify sites where opportunities exist to forge creative and cross-jurisdictional approaches to salmon conservation. In order for the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership to choose salmon strongholds, the Wild Salmon Center held workshops to rate species specific populations across the Pacific Northwest. We organized two expert workshops in Portland, Oregon...

The geographic distribution of stream reaches with potential to support high quality habitat for salmonids has bearing on the actual status of habitats and populations over broad spatial extents. As part of the Coastal Landscape Analysis and Modeling Study (CLAMS), we examined how salmon-habitat potential was distributed relative to current and future (+100 years) landscape characteristics in the Coastal Province of Oregon, USA. The intrinsic potential to provide high-quality rearing habitat was modeled for juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and juvenile steelhead (O. mykiss) based on stream flow, valley constraint, and stream gradient. See Supplemental Information for additional detail. BLM: (Bureau of...
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...

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...

The source of this coverage data set is the fish biodiversity maps created for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as part of their Hexagon Project. Professor Peter Moyle and his graduate student, Paul Randall, of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation Biology at the University of California, Davis were hired to produce range maps for all known fish species that presently occur in California. Each coverage denotes a separate fish species (refer to the species coverage key below).
