Abstract : A review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a riverine habitat model for Coho Salmon (Oncorhychus kitsutch) an anadromous species. The model is scaled to produce an index of habitat suitability between 0 (unsuitable habitat) and 1 (optimally suitable habitat) for riverine areas of the continental United States. Habitat suitability indices (HSI's) are designed for use with Habitat Evaluation Procedures previously developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. p38
