~~*  Educational Materials Concerning Salmon and Salmon Habitat  *~~


The following is a series of pages relating to salmon, their habitat and some things we can do to influence their return to the forest streams. There is a great wealth of information available on the WWW regarding this topic. If you have a particularly special link you would like to add to this topic please feel free to forward it to me.

The Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission has given me permission to mirror these educational materials here. The material is very interesting and helpful. It covers in considerable detail the salmon runs here on the west coast.

Also included here in the table below is a free (PDF format) and excellent Stream Habitat Restoration Guideline publication from the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Washington State Department of Ecology. This publication is also available in hard back copy. The details to get it are on the WDFW website.

Most of these documents are in PDF format. The following are open source programs that will make these documents readable on your system.
