The Western Strait of Juan de Fuca (WSJF) Habitat Conservation Plan identifies and prioritizes aquatic and riparian habitat that are important to salmon and steelhead productivity and survival. The plan specifically focuses on the most important floodplain, riparian, and nearshore habitats. Habitat conditions and aquatic ecosystem health are a function of the interaction between watershed controls, watershed processes, and land use. Land use plays a key role in how vegetation affects habitat forming processes occurring within a watershed: sediment supply, hydrological regime, organic inputs, nutrient supply, and light/heat inputs. Salmonid populations depend on the existing quantity and quality of salmon habitat in the freshwater and marine environments.
