Status & Trends by Species

Sockeye


University of Washington

Sockeye is an anadromous fish species, and has been named as a focal species by subbasin planners in 6 subbasins. Status and trends data are available for this species in 5 subbasins. 1 subbasin has no data available. Sockeye is Federally protected in 2 subbasins. No biological objectives have been set for this focal species in the Columbia River Basin.

Sockeye are unique in that they require a lake in which to rear, so the river system in which they spawn must have a lake. Juvenile sockeye rear for one or two years in a lake before migrating to the ocean.

Focal species represent the fish species that the subbasin planners have identified as focal species for the respective subbasin. The biological objectives associated with a focal species were either described in the subbasin plan or were included in state, tribal, or federal recovery/management plans. Biological objectives and current status are linked to their respective reference information; if the reference exists on-line, a link is provided to the original data.

The status and trend information represents the most current data that is available. Data were collected through interviews with biologists and reviews of reports and websites. Each chart is linked to a table of the data, and each datapoint in that table is linked to reference information. The focal species data presented have been reviewed and approved by the respective collectors.
