Fresh, K.L. 2006. Juvenile Pacific Salmon in Puget Sound. Puget Sound Nearshore Partnership Report No. 2006-06. Published by Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle, Washington.

Puget Sound salmon (genus Oncorhynchus) spawn in freshwater and feed, grow and mature in marine waters. During their transition from freshwater to saltwater, juvenile salmon occupy nearshore ecosystems in Puget Sound. This period of nearshore residence is critical to the viability, persistence and abundance of Puget Sound salmon. Thus, restoring and protecting nearshore habitats important to juvenile salmon must be a part of efforts to rebuild depleted salmon runs throughout this region. The primary objective of this report is to summarize what we know about salmon use of nearshore habitats to help protect and restore these habitats.


  • Life history diversity is important.
  • Chinook may reside in delta 120 days.
