The purpose of this Conservation Plan is to ensure the continued viability of the Oregon Coast Coho Evolutionary Significant Unit (ESU) and to achieve a desired status that provides substantial ecological and societal benefits. The Oregon Coast Coho ESU is viable (see Table 2; State of Oregon 2005) and does not currently require protection under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) (NOAA Fisheries 2006). The current status of this ESU reflects a reduction in fishery harvest, improved hatchery management, and extensive habitat restoration work initiated or maintained under the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds (Oregon Plan). This Conservation Plan maintains and enhances support of the Oregon Plan and meets the requirements of Oregon’s Native Fish Conservation Policy (NFCP) (OAR 635-007-0502 to 0509).
