Describes a new ecosystem based approach to the restoration of salmon and steelhead populations in the Columbia River, once one of the most productive river basins for anadromous salmonids on the West Coast of North America. Although based on the ground breaking methods and theories adopted in the Columbia River restoration, this case study provides a broad blueprint for dealing with fish stock restoration in rivers throughout the northern hemisphere and has general applicability to fisheries and aquatic restoration efforts throughout the world.
