Abstract
  • Chinook salmon are the largest of any of the salmon in Oregon. Mature fish range from less than 2 pounds to more than 70 pounds. In the late 1800s, chinook salmon were almost the only species taken for canning in the Columbia River, with production peaking at 43 million pounds in 1883. By the 1880s, chinook salmon population declines were already a cause of concern. Historically, the range of chinook salmon included all coastal streams below natural barriers. On the coast, in 1900, there were approximately 500,000 chinook salmon. Today, this number has declined by 30 percent to 50 percent. This publication is designed to help readers understand how, where, and when chinook salmon live in watersheds and what people can do to help conserve and restore their runs.
