Skeena Watershed Initiative

Our Projects

Between 2008 and 2011, the Skeena Watershed Initiative directed a suite of scientific investigations to support improved management and conservation of Skeena salmon, steelhead, and their habitat.

Projects were sponsored by the Pacific Salmon Foundation with funding support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Living Rivers Trust Fund. Browse or search the project list below to find out more about these projects and to access project reports and results.
