Table description
Table classifies ecological concerns for salmon in categories. We defined Ecological Concern as : Changes to the ecological conditions essential for maintaining the long-term viability of a given population of salmonids, which cause mortality, injury, reduced health or reduced reproduction. Published in 2012, in paper Hamm, D. E. 2012. Development and evaluation of a data dictionary to standardize salmonid habitat assessments in the Pacific Northwest. Fisheries 37: 6–18.
