This is a map shows the distribution of salmonids in the Humboldt Bay Basin. Chinook and steelhead distribution were obtained from NOAA. Potential coho habitat was calculated from stream gradient. Gradients less than or equal to 4 percent from the outflow were selected and saved. Any gradient steeper than 4% served as a cutoff for any further potential migration up stream. These data are preliminary only, and were produced with the understanding that coho salmon are able to leap greater than 4% for short distances. Therefore, the data are considered conservative estimates.
