PNW Salmon Indicators GIS Support Project (WRIA 7)


Pacific Northwest Salmon Habitat Indicators were developed to help evaluate the environmental and human risk to salmonid stocks in the region. Functional categories of Salmon Indicators included: Fish Abundance, Water Quality, Land Use/Land Cover, and Physical Habitat. The project attempted to map as many of the 15 indicators as possible using only pre-existing data sources. The project took this approach to test the plausibility of answering these questions on a statewide basis in Washington.
