Item Identification

Title: Coho Salmon (Oregon Coast ESU)
Publication Date: 2008-02-11

Critical habitat includes the stream channels within the designated stream reaches, and includes a lateral extent as defined by the ordinary high-water line (33 CFR 319.11). In areas where ordinary high-water line has not been defined, the lateral extent is defined by the bankfull elevation. Bankfull elevation is the level at which water begins to leave the channel and move into the floodplain and is reached at a discharge which generally has a recurrence interval of 1 to 2 years on the annual flood series. Critical habitat in lake areas is defined by the perimeter of the water body as displayed on standard 1:24,000 scale topographic maps or the elevation of ordinary high water, whichever is greater.See the final rule (73 FR 7816) for descriptions of areas excluded from this critical habitat designation. Excluded Indian lands were not clipped out of the data.


These data represent critical habitat designated (February 11, 2008, 73 FR 7816) under the Endangered Species Act for the Oregon Coast coho salmon ESU.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1082071

Data creation process 2008.


Critical habitat data were derived from ODFW's 1:100,000 and 1:24,000 fish distribution data.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1082072

COORC_FCH_2-11-08.shp (NAD_1927_Albers) geographic transformation, unprojected -> COORC_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269).

Geometry was edited (deleted features), attributes were not edited, metadata was edited.

Deleted features with F_EXCLUDE = “Yes” (i.e., removed the economic exclusion features that were not designated).

Process Date/Time: 2019-07-17 00:00:00

Process Step 3

CC ID: 1082073

The 2019 version COORC_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269) was converted into the standardized feature class SalmonCoho_OregonCoastESU_20080211 (GCS_WGS_84 wkid 4326) using the National Critical Habitat Geodatabase processing protocol.

During standardization, geometry was not edited. Attributes were edited. Metadata was edited and populated using the final rule and metadata from the source COORC_FCH_2-11-08.shp (NAD_1927_Albers).

Migrated fields: "STRM_NAME" into "UNIT" (deleted value "unnamed"), "USE" into "NOTES" (populated descriptions instead of values -> 1 = Spawning/Rearing, 2 = Rearing/Migration, 3 = Presence/Migration)
