Salmon: Salmon Management Documents: SAFE (Review) Documents, Preseason Reports, Rebuilding Plans

The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) produces annual reviews and preseason planning documents for ocean salmon fisheries, which are available on the Council’s website.  The annual Review of Ocean Salmon Fisheries (SAFE document) is posted on the Salmon Review webpage.   The three annual Preseason reports (Preseason I, II, and III) are posted on the Salmon Preseason Report webpage and in combination produce the Environmental Assessment to comply National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements for ocean salmon management measures each year.

In addition to the annual Salmon management documents, Salmon Rebuilding Plans are produced when specific stocks meet certain criteria outlined in the Pacific Coast Salmon Fishery Management Plan (FMP).  Salmon Rebuilding plans (including past assessments of specific salmon stocks) are posted on the Salmon Rebuilding Plan webpage.

All documents are available via our website electronically only. Printed hard copies are made on a case by case basis, and by request only. Please contact Kris Kleinschmidt at 503-820-2280 or kris.kleinschmidt@noaa.govfor special requests.
