Chum salmon are also known as "dog salmon", are very broadly distributed, often spawning in the mainstems of small coastal streams. They are more tolerant of road grime than Coho Salmon. They migrate rapidly to Nearshore Ecosystems, and along with Chinook Salmon are the most dependent on nearshore habitats for rearing.
