Salmon: Stock Assessment and Fishery Evaluation (SAFE) Documents

The Salmon Technical Team (STT) prepares annual posteason reviews of ocean salmon fisheries off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California to assess Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) salmon fishery management and stock status. This annual document is referred to as ”The Salmon Review” or SAFE document. The salmon review includes information on regulations, catch and effort estimates, spawning escapement, and economics.

The STT also compiles the historical data used in the salmon review documents into an Historical Data Document (sometimes referred to as the “Blue Book”) in Excel, which will allow users to access and manipulate data for other purposes.

The STT also provides three additional preseason reports prior to the beginning of the ocean salmon season to guide the Council’s selection of annual fishery management measures.  Preseason reports are available at the link to the left.
