Spatial Institute to help with updating fish distribution map

The Spatial Institute of Western Washington University and the Hood Canal Coordinating Council will be holding a one-day steelhead mapping exercise at the Hood Canal Coordinating Office on Jan. 28.

This meeting will call together federal, tribal, state, county and other steelhead experts who work in the Hood Canal region and will collect from them local-level steelhead distribution information to update the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife / Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission Statewide Integrated Fish Distribution dataset for the Hood Canal region.

The Spatial Institute has been contracted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is partnering with the Hood Canal Coordinating Council to lead this effort for updating the statewide fish distribution map for the Hood Canal.
