Southern California Steelhead Recovery Plan

January 01, 2012

The goal of ESA recovery under this plan is to improve the viability of these steelhead, and the ecosystems upon which they depend, to the point that they no longer require ESA protection.

The goal of this Recovery Plan is to prevent the extinction of southern California steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in the wild and to ensure the long‐term persistence of viable, self‐sustaining, populations of steelhead distributed across the Southern California Distinct Population Segment (DPS). It is also the goal of this Recovery Plan to re‐ establish a sustainable southern California steelhead sport fishery.
