Click on a watershed using the fish icons in the map on the right or use the dropdown menu to select a watershed Snapshot.
For the first time ever an analysis of the state of California salmon and restoration efforts has been completed by The Nature Conservancy, using data provided by The Department of Fish and Wildlife, water districts and local watershed organizations.
The Snapshots focus on coastal watersheds because we want to raise awareness about the remaining, predominantly wild salmon populations, or those that are not dominated by hatchery stock.
The current set of 37 Snapshots focus on the California coastal watersheds that monitor spawning salmon following the California Coastal Monitoring Program or other long-term monitoring programs, such as the Klamath-Trinity Restoration Program.
Coming soon - We are expanding the Snapshots to California's interior Central Valley watersheds, including the Northern Sierra Nevadas and the Sacramento Valley.
