Salmon Technical Team to Meet June 20-21 and June 26-28, 2018

The Salmon Technical Team (STT) will hold a series of meetings to initiate the development of salmon rebuilding plans for Klamath River fall Chinook, Sacramento River fall Chinook, Strait of Juan de Fuca natural coho, Queets River natural coho, and Snohomish River natural coho.  All meetings will be held from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. on the dates and at the locations specified below.  All meetings are open to the public.

Purpose of the Meeting

Three natural coho stocks (Queets coho, Strait of Juan de Fuca coho, and Snohomish coho) and two Chinook stocks (Sacramento River fall Chinook and Klamath River fall Chinook) were found to meet the criteria for being classified as overfished in the PFMC Review of 2017 Ocean Salmon Fisheries.  Under the tenets of the Salmon Fishery Management Plan (FMP), the STT is required to develop a salmon rebuilding plan for each of these stocks and propose them to the Council within one year.

The STT will meet with tribal, state, and other management entities who will work with the STT to provide data and expertise on pertinent topics to be included in each rebuilding plan, consistent with the FMP.  Discussions may include, but are not limited to, work flow, document structure, and timeline.  One meeting will occur for each of the five stocks; additional meetings will be scheduled as needed.
