Salmon Stronghold is a watershed, multiple watersheds, basin or other defined spatial
unit where wild salmon populations are strong and diverse, and the habitat has high
intrinsic potential to support a particular salmon and steelhead species or
suite of species.
Salmon Stronghold is an area designated on the basis of biological criteria representing
high quality standards for abundance, productivity, diversity (life history and
run timing) and other biological attributes important to sustaining viable populations
of wild Pacific salmon throughout its range.
Salmon Stronghold is a core centre of salmon abundance and diversity that generates
the highest percentage of wild salmon.
Salmon Stronghold is defined as being among the healthiest remaining wild
Pacific salmon ecosystems in North America to ensure
the long-term survival of salmon, steelhead, and the many species that depend on
them and inhabit those watersheds.
Salmon Stronghold is a priority-ranked watershed or area that is part of a
comprehensive conservation strategy that requires the continuation of
protection and restoration of salmon habitat wherever it is detrimentally impacted
or at risk.
