Welcome to Salmon-net

A collaborative project to improve public access to science relevant to Pacific salmon conservation and management

Shifting habitat mosaics stabilize salmon production

Brennan et al. (2019). Science 364:783-86.

Production of Pacific salmon is dependent on the presence of a diversity of habitats in their natal watersheds to provide the resources needed during different life stages. Freshwater habitats aren’t static, however, but rather are highly dynamic under natural conditions, as the quality of habitat patches are shaped by the interactions of numerous environmental factors. Changes in one or more of these factors can greatly influence habitat location. Read on.
