Recovery Plan for Oregon Coast Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)

December 01, 2016

The goal of ESA recovery under this plan is to improve the viability of Oregon Coast Coho, and the ecosystems upon which it depends, to the point that they no longer require ESA protection.

Oregon Coast coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) are protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This recovery plan (Plan) provides guidance to improve the viability of the species to the point that it meets the delisting criteria and no longer requires ESA protection. Under ESA direction, we need to resolve threats to the species and ensure the long-term persistence of naturally selfsustaining populations in the wild. Recovery direction for Oregon Coast coho salmon has one central overriding theme: to protect and restore the freshwater and estuarine rearing habitats that support juvenile survival and overall productivity.
