Purpose of the Webinars

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 , tribal, state, Federal, and other management entities are working together to develop the salmon rebuilding plans.  These meetings are the third of a series of meetings and will focus on the development of potential recommendations to be included in each rebuilding plan.  Additional topics for discussion may include, but are not limited to, outstanding data needs, data analysis, and economic aspects to be included in each plan.  One meeting will occur for each of the five stocks; additional meetings will be scheduled as needed.  These meetings are open to the public.  All meetings will have the same webinar ID and access code.
