Conserving species and Idaho's lifestyle.

Salmon & Steelhead

Since 1992, several species of salmon and steelhead that migrate from Idaho to the ocean have been listed as either endangered or threatened under the ESA. Sockeye Salmon were listed as endangered in 1992, Chinook salmon listed in 1993 (two runs of Chinook, spring/summer, and fall), and steelhead, which are a form of seagoing trout, listed as threatened in 1998. All of these species are anadromous, meaning they are seagoing. Salmon and steelhead migrate from Idaho and other Northwest states through the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean, and return to their native rivers and creeks to spawn and continue the cycle.

Many factors are to blame for the reduction in salmon and steelhead including hydroelectric dams along the river, habitat loss, pollution and harvest.
