NOAA Fisheries approves and implements the final rule for revisions to regulations that implement the Pacific Fishery Management Council's (Council) Pacific Salmon Fishery Management Plan (FMP). This final action removes a rebuilding plan for Sacramento River fall-run Chinook salmon (SRFC), as this stock has been rebuilt and is no longer required to be managed under a rebuilding plan, and updates language to reflect the 2013 merger of NMFS' Northwest Region (NWR) and Southwest Region (SWR), which created the West Coast Region (WCR).
