Abstract

A literature review was undertaken for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to develop a template for habitat status reports as part of the Conservation Unit reporting requirements under the Wild Salmon Policy. The objective of the literature review was to summarize the current state of knowledge regarding habitat productivity models for the 5 Pacific salmon species. The models included habitat state indicators and habitat pressure indicators, two components of a framework that can link indicators with values and goals to guide management actions under DFO’s Wild Salmon Policy.
