Oncorhynchus tshawytscha

LEVEL OF CONCERN: HIGH
Central Valley (CV) late fall-run Chinook salmon are vulnerable to extinction in the next 50-100 years. They have been eliminated from the majority of their native spawning habitat and for the most part are now dependent upon cold water releases from reservoirs and gravel augmentation to maintain suitable habitat.
