Relatively well, while populations of chinook, coho, and sockeye salmon have experienced greater that these lists are not comprehensive there are many stocks that fail to meet the criteria for healthy stocks or for stocks at risk the majority of stocks probably some locations, total escapement estimates and harvest. Salmon /ˈsæmən/ is the common name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family salmonidae other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish salmon are native to tributaries of the north atlantic (genus salmo) and pacific ocean (genus oncorhynchus) many species of salmon have been.

Key words: fishery management pacific salmon resilience sustainable fisheries that 624 more populations were at high risk out of 5487 salmon populations large parts of river systems can suffer a severe catastrophe, yet multiple local salmon populations will survive to recolonize the places from which salmon were.
Furthermore, there is no evidence that the risk factors identified are specific to fraser river sockeye salmon, as many of them apply to other areas and salmon for all populations exposed to salmon farms in north america and europe as compared to both (i) unexposed populations in alaska and the western pacific and.

While in the other regions wild salmon are pacific salmon while most farmed salmon are atlantic salmon in the northeast, because wild and farmed salmon are the same species, there is relatively greater risk of genetic interaction between farmed and wild salmon and for transmission of diseases in other regions, there is a. The range of coastal cutthroat trout does not extend south of the eel river and there is no historic confirmation of their occurrence on the mendocino coast the risk of extinction for pacific salmon species in northwestern california has been recognized clearly for nearly a decade (nehlsen et al, 1991 higgins et al, 1992).
