  • Description:
    Oregon Coast coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) are protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The fish spawn and rear in rivers, streams, and lakes along Oregon's coastline, from the Necanicum River near Seaside on the north to the Sixes River near Port Orford on the south (Figure S-1). NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) first listed Oregon Coast coho salmon as a threatened species under the ESA in 1998. NMFS relisted the species in 2008 and reaffirmed the listing in 2011. This recovery plan (Plan) provides guidance to improve the viability of the species to the point that it meets the delisting criteria and no longer requires ESA protection. Under ESA direction, we need to resolve threats to the species and ensure the long-term persistence of naturally selfsustaining populations in the wild. Recovery direction for Oregon Coast coho salmon has one central overriding theme: to protect and restore the freshwater and estuarine rearing habitats that support juvenile survival and overall productivity. The Plan builds on past and current efforts to restore the coho salmon. In particular, this plan calls for continued actions to repair the ecosystem processes that influence the health and stability of the rearing habitats for juvenile coho salmon. The actions will also benefit many other fish and wildlife species, and could provide aid to land owners and local communities"--Introduction.
