Recovery Plan for Snake River Spring/Summer Chinook Salmon and Snake River Basin Steelhead

November 30, 2017

The goal of ESA recovery under this plan is to improve the viability of Snake River spring/summer Chinook salmon and steelhead, and the ecosystems upon which they depend, to the point that they no longer require ESA protection.

Recovery plans identify actions needed to restore threatened and endangered species to the point that they are again self-sustaining elements of their ecosystems and no longer need protection under the Endangered Species Act. Although recovery plans are not regulatory documents, they serve as a central organizing tool for guiding and coordinating recovery efforts across a wide spectrum of federal, state, tribal, local, and private entities.
