Recovery Plan Outline for Black Abalone

September 01, 2016

This outline is meant to serve as an interim guidance document to outline recovery efforts, including recovery planning, for black abalone, until a full recovery plan is developed and approved

While the recovery plan is being developed, we provide this preliminary action plan to guide decisions that may affect the recovery of black abalone. This preliminary action plan focuses on measures that may be implemented by NMFS and identifies the major steps that could lead to full recovery, the needs that must be addressed immediately, and the options to conserve for later planning decisions. We will link and coordinate ESA programs to recovery planning and focus on developing stronger, more collaborative partnerships with other entities whose decisions affect black abalone recovery.
