Puget Sound Steelhead Recovery Team

Shortly after Puget Sound steelhead's listing, NOAA Fisheries convened a Puget Sound Steelhead Technical Recovery Team (PSSTRT).  A list of the team members and affiliations are available at: PSSTRT

The PSSTRT was tasked with identifying population structure and developing biological viability criteria for Puget Sound steelhead. The PSSTRT sunset following completion of these documents.

Using the PSSTRT’s scientific guidance as the foundation for our work, NOAA Fisheries convened a new Puget Sound Steelhead Recovery Team (Team) to assist the agency in preparing a draft recovery plan for Puget Sound steelhead.  An introduction and terms of reference for this Team are available at: Terms of Reference
