Restore Productive and Diverse Habitats

Restoring function to once-productive but now highly altered habitats can greatly improve rearing conditions for juvenile salmonids, especially floodplains, coastal lagoons, estuaries, and spring-fed rivers. These types of habitats are relatively scarce, yet are vital nurseries for juvenile fishes and support robust growth rates when compared with typical in-river conditions. Improved growth prior to ocean migration and high life history diversity increases the likelihood of marine survival and adult returns to natal tributaries.
