2004 State of Salmon in Watersheds Report
Salmon in Washington are in trouble. Since the federal government listed the first salmon in 1991, thirteen more salmon species have been added and another is proposed for listing by next year.
The 2004 State of Salmon in Watersheds looks at what we have done to recover these fish and what progress we have made. It offers a view of current conditions in each of the salmon recovery regions preparing regional salmon recovery plans. And, the "Dozen Dials" are updated to reflect progress made in conditions these high-level indicators track.
