- Fast Facts -

The Nooksack River Basin has all five species of Pacific salmon: chinook, chum, coho, pink, and sockeye salmon.

  • Chinook are the largest Pacific salmon species and can reach up to 135 pounds!
  • Coho have the nickname silver salmon because they retain their silvery ocean color longer than any other salmon species after entering fresh water.
  • In 2013, 1,789 Whatcom County students spent 15,721 hours participating in NSEA educational programs.
  • In 2013, 91 streamside habitat restoration work parties were held. 2,711 volunteers donated 6,787 hours to streamside work parties! 

Pacific salmon have disappeared from about 40% of their historical breeding ranges in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and California over the last century, and many remaining populations are severely depressed in areas where they were formerly abundant.
