Southern Oregon Northern California Coast Coho Salmon Recovery Plan

NOAA Fisheries released the final Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast (SONCC) Coho Salmon Recovery Plan on September 30, 2014. The goal of the plan is to restore SONCC coho salmon to healthy, self-sustaining numbers so that the protections of the Endangered Species Act are no longer necessary. Conservation partners have advanced many habitat restoration, barrier removal, and threat reduction actions since the species was listed in 1997, and the plan was developed with extensive input from these partners. The recovery plan provides a means to organize and coordinate recovery of this species based on the best available scientific information. The recovery plan and accompanying documents are available below. Suggestions or changes to this recovery plan can be submitted to Julie Weeder, SONCC coho salmon recovery coordinator;
