Separate from the OCCCP, the Oregon Coast Workgroup of the Oregon and Northern California Coasts Technical Recovery Team (TRT) developed a formal decision support framework for assessing the biological status of the OC Coho ESU with respect to listing under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA; Wainwright et al. 2008).1 This framework, the Oregon Coast Coho Decision Support System (DSS), integrates numerous metrics from multiple monitoring projects and data analyses into a logical basis for decisions regarding the biological status of the OC Coho ESU.
