  • Description:
    This report contains biological assessments supporting the National Marine Fisheries Service’s (NMFS) final designation of critical habitat under section 4 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) for two listed distinct population segments (DPS): lower Columbia River coho salmon and Puget Sound steelhead. NMFS convened two critical habitat analytical review teams (CHARTs) charged with analyzing the best available data for each DPS to make findings regarding the presence of essential habitat features in each watershed, potential management actions that may affect those features, and the conservation value of each watershed within each DPS’s range. This report summarizes the agency’s mapping efforts, methods and information used, and final CHART assessments for these two DPSs. This information will be used in conjunction with other agency analyses (e.g., a final economic analysis and ESA section 4(b)(2) analysis) to determine which areas to designate as critical habitat for lower Columbia River coho salmon and Puget Sound steelhead.
