Original Record

Salmon escapement data constitute important corporate knowledge which must be adequately maintained and accessible. The Salmon Escapement Database (NuSEDS) is the DFO Pacific Region’s central database that stores individual spawner survey data records, spawner abundance estimates and the linkages between the two. Annual abundance estimates are maintained by population, as defined by freshwater location and run timing. Each population is referenced to the location of the stream mouth. The watershed-coding system provides unique stream identification and incorporates the natural organization, direction, and hierarchical nature of stream channels and their tributaries.

The NuSEDS database currently reports salmon spawning observations for 9100+ …

In partnership with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Parks Canada monitors salmon populations on 5 key indicator streams by annually measuring the “escapement” value of salmon stocks in each watershed. ‘Escapement’ is the number of adult salmon that have escaped predation and returned to streams and rivers to spawn. This measure is part of a larger, Haida Gwaii monitoring program led by DFO. Five salmon species are monitored in Gwaii Haanas: sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka), coho (O. kisutch), pink (O. gorbuscha), chum (O. keta) and chinook (O. tschawytscha

A Conservation Unit (CU) is a group of wild Pacific salmon sufficiently isolated from other groups that, if extirpated, is very unlikely to recolonize naturally within an acceptable timeframe, such as a human lifetime or a specified number of salmon generations.

Holtby and Ciruna (2007) provided a framework for aggregating the five species of salmon (genus Oncorhynchus) found on Canada’s Pacific coast into species-specific CUs based on three primary characteristics: ecotypology, life history and genetics. The first stage in the description of the Conservation Units is based solely on ecology. The ecotypologies used in this framework include a combined characterization …
