Abstract: Seven species of anadromous salmon comprised of more than 9000 local populations return annually to thousands of streams in coastal and interior watersheds throughout British Columbia. Salmon are commonly used as biological indicators of state changes in marine or aquatic environments because they are: (i) relatively widespread in freshwater and marine ecosystems, (ii) highly valued from economic and cultural perspectives, (iii) reasonably diverse in terms of species, life histories and genetic variations within species, (iv) highly sensitive to environmental change at each of several life history stages, and (v) commonly the subjects of long term assessment programs. Observations from studies of salmon allow us to draw inferences about changes in the state of aquatic and riparian ecosystems on a variety of temporal scales ranging from weeks to centuries and spatial scales ranging from meters to thousands of kilometers...
