    Since the listing of Pacific salmon under the federal Endangered Species Act, he has served on four independent scientific panels looking into the status and restoration of the salmon. Jim's recent book "Salmon Without Rivers" is a history of the Pacific salmon crisis. Wild salmon inhabit a vast ecosystem that encompasses the rivers within and the ocean between coastal countries of the Pacific Rim. But within the past century and a half, many populations have declined in abundance and diversity; without the big picture, we haven’t been able to understand or quantify these losses in Pacific salmon populations.

    3. Read students the book, Salmon Stream or The Salmon. The story follows the life cycle of the Pacific salmon. After the story, have students discuss each stage of the salmon's life. Use the life cycle illustration. 4. Explain that each student is going to create a story about the life of a salmon. Show the students the salmon life cycle bracelet. 18) Which of the following examples would most accurately measure the density of the population being studied? A) counting the number of prairie dog burrows per hectare B) counting the number of times a 1 kilometer transect is intersected by tracks of red squirrels after a snowfall C) counting the number of coyote droppings per hectare D) multiplying the number of moss plants counted .

      Atlantic salmon are actually more closely related to brown trout than Pacific salmon. That's why they don't breed with Pacific salmon — even when researchers have tried to force it in the lab. The clear implication is that if the wild runs of Pacific salmon are allowed to die, the region as a special place—as a distinctive part of the United States—will die, too. The symbol of the salmon, like the symbol of the Californian, has a lot of power in the Pacific Northwest.
