Description

Fisheries and Oceans Canada adopted the Wild Salmon Policy (WSP) for the conservation of wild Pacific Salmon in 2005, with the overall goal of restoring and maintaining healthy and diverse salmon populations and their habitats. Strategy 2 of WSP requires the assessment of habitats associated with salmon Conservation Units (CUs). The purpose of this document is to summarize the habitat conditions impacting salmon CUs in the Lower Harrison River Watershed (LHW), to select habitat indicators appropriate to the watershed and conservation units, and to identify existing reports to inform habitat status.
