Northwest - NOAA Accepts Puget Sound Draft Salmon Recovery Plan
The head of NOAA said that a draft recovery plan for Puget Sound Chinook submitted to the agency by Shared Strategy for Puget Sound is an "historic accomplishment." At a July 7 luncheon in Seattle celebrating the event, retired Navy Vice Admiral Conrad C. Lautenbacher Jr., Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and NOAA administrator, said the plan "represents President Bush's vision for salmon recovery coming to fruition. The President's goal was to develop region-wide recovery plans from the ground up, relying on those at the local level who are closest to the issue and who best know how to fix the problems and today we have taken a giant step toward reaching that goal."

The Endangered Species Act (ESA), which protects more than a dozen salmon populations in the region, requires NOAA Fisheries Service to produce recovery plans. This draft plan represents broad salmon-recovery interests in the region and is part of a what will be a dozen or more watershed-level recovery plans that will eventually form the foundation for NOAA Fisheries Service's own comprehensive, regional plan for salmon and steelhead in the Northwest. See the Web at http://www.nwr.noaa.gov for more information.

Northwest - NOAA Fisheries Service announces intent to produce draft northwest
salmon recovery plans by December 2005. In a Federal Register notice published July 7, NOAA announced its intent to develop recovery plans for 16 Ecologically Significant Units of Pacific salmon and steelhead in the Northwest listed as threatened or endangered under the ESA and requested information from the public. The Region is working with state, federal, tribal and local entities in Washington, Oregon and Idaho to produce draft recovery plans by December 2005. Comments must be received by Sept 6, 2005.
