DFO divides British Columbia’s coastal waters into salmonid fish health zones and sub-zones based loosely on watershed boundaries. Zone 2 represents Vancouver Island and Zone 3 is the mainland coast from the Fraser River north to the Alaska/B.C. border.

Atlantic salmon facility information is summarized by sub-zone whereas the Pacific salmon facilities data is reported by zone as they are far fewer in number.
