Lower Columbia Recovery Partnerships

Salmon recovery is a shared responsibility that requires action at all levels of government and by all stakeholders. Partnerships among federal, state, local, and tribal entities, together with non-governmental and private organizations, are key to restoring healthy salmon runs and securing the economic and cultural benefits they provide. NOAA Fisheries believes that effective salmon recovery is implemented at the local level, but our staff plays a key role in the recovery process, including: providing scientific and policy support, providing funding as available, and working with our partners to improve regulatory mechanisms for salmon recovery. NOAA Fisheries is committed to working with our partners and stakeholders to restore salmon so we can all share the benefits of this common resource. Many federal, state, local, and private entities have participated in, and made important contributions to, recovery planning and implementation. Key partners working to restore lower Columbia River salmon and steelhead are identified below.
