Summary

NMFS proposes to approve and implement rebuilding plans recommended by the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) for three overfished stocks:  Juan de Fuca, Queets, and Snohomish natural coho salmon (collectively, the overfished coho stocks).  NMFS determined in June 2018 that these stocks were overfished.  

NMFS also announces the availability for public review and comment of draft environmental assessments (EA) analyzing the environmental impacts of implementing these rebuilding plans.
