An Upstream Battle: Declines in 10 Pacific Salmon Stocks and Solutions for their Survival

This report profiles the current status and trends of 10 examples of salmon stocks in British Columbia that are considered to be in a severe state of decline. (There are many others.) These stocks were selected because they are geographically located within a region where a number of stocks of that species are in decline and the available data provide a reliable index of stocks status. They include four stocks of sockeye (Lakelse, Long, Nimpkish, and Cultus lakes), three of coho (Middle North Thompson, Brunette, and Cowichan rivers), and one each of chinook salmon (Nimpkish River), chum salmon (Viner Sound Creek), and steelhead (Keogh River).
