FISH AND GAME COMMISSION TO RECEIVE PUBLIC COMMENT AND CONSIDER COHO SALMON RECOVERY STRATEGY


The California Fish and Game Commission will receive public comments and consider approving the Coho Salmon Recovery Strategy, as modified in response to comments, at 10 a.m. on Feb. 4, at the City of Sacramento Council Chambers 730 I Street, 1st Floor.

The Coho Salmon Recovery Strategy provides a blueprint for the recovery of coho salmon in California, helping to revive struggling coho populations and restore their habitat. Ultimately, the implementation of the Recovery Strategy will lead to the removal of coho salmon from the California Endangered Species List as well as lead to the restoration of tribal, commercial, and recreational coho salmon fisheries.

The Recovery Strategy is complex and lengthy, containing 13 chapters in over 700 pages of text encompassing more than 750 recommendations and more than 1,000 recovery tasks. It represents an unprecedented effort by the Department of Fish and Game, and other state agencies and stakeholders - which include commercial and recreational fishing, forestry, agriculture, ranching, water management, and environmental interests, and also representatives of tribal, federal and county governments.

The Recovery Strategy and the Response to Comments are available online at http://www.dfg.ca.gov/nafwb/coho.html
