Abstract or Description

This map shows the critical Atlantic salmon habitat in Maine, as well as rivers, streams, and water bodies with accompanying hydrological impoundments including dams and levees. It was created using data from the Maine office of GIS and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) GIS database. As reported by the Environment Maine Winter Report of 2011, hydroelectric dams are one of the biggest threats to the species’ survival, which is currently in danger. Dams b lock the salmon’s passage to an d from the sea or the fish are killed when attempting to travel through the dam's turbines.
