For highlights of eight years of accomplishments to protect and conserve ESA-listed salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin, read the 2016 Citizen’s Guide. The guide describes efforts to expand the distribution and abundance of Columbia and Snake river salmon and steelhead by making multipurpose federal dams safer for fish, removing barriers to fish migration in tributaries, reducing the time it takes juvenile fish to travel downstream, managing predators, and restoring tributary and estuary habitat.
