West Coast Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon Permitting
The Endangered Species Act provides several mechanisms for authorizing and permitting activities related to protected fish species.
Permits or other forms of authorization are required under the Endangered Species Act to protect listed species.
We are in the process of migrating permitting information to this website including information on protected fish species on the West Coast (salmon, steelhead, and green sturgeon).
During our website transition, please visit the following links for detailed information:
