For this project, we propose to integrate the data about Fraser River salmon populations into a multi-species, multi-population database, and develop an interactive data visualization tool that allows fisheries scientists and managers to explore this data at different spatial and temporal scales. The objective of this project is to provide fisheries scientists and managers with the tools to easily and comprehensively track annual trends in salmon data, and explore these trends for their possible drivers. The development of the data visualizations will be guided by methodology from design studies and psychology to quantifies the visualizations ability to promote insight and understanding of this complex dataset. This understanding of variation in Fraser River salmon abundances will in turn lead to more effectively managed fisheries.
