The California Coastal Multispecies Recovery Plan was developed for three salmon and steelhead species: the California Coastal (CC) Chinook salmon Evolutionarily Significant Unit (ESU), and the Northern California (NC) and Central California Coast (CCC) steelhead Distinct Population Segments (DPS). The purpose of a recovery plan is to provide a framework for the conservation and survival of the listed species [ESA section 4(f)(1)] that focuses and prioritizes threat abatement and restoration actions necessary to recover, and eventually delist, a species.
