Amendment 11: Oregon coastal natural coho

The eleventh amendment (Dec. 1993) addresses the failure of the seventh amendment to correctly anticipate the persistent low Oregon coastal natural coho stock abundance and subsequent frequency of annual spawner goals below MSY, and allows the Council to avoid possible imbalances in recreational coho harvest allocation at low allowable harvest levels and the constant use of an emergency rule to implement annual regulations.
