Recovering Salmon & Steelhead To Healthy, Harvestable Levels

The Lower Columbia Fish Recovery Board is the Regional Salmon Recovery Organization and Lead Entity for salmon habitat restoration for the lower Columbia River in southwest Washington. The LCFRB works with a diversity of partners to recover species comprised of 74 distinct salmon, steelhead, and bull trout populations to healthy, harvestable levels by guiding implementation of the federally adopted recovery plan.

The Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership has published a new report summarizing take home messages from 13 IMW studies across the Pacific Northwest. The report provides the salmon recovery and habitat restoration community an initial indication of management implications from the IMW result to date, and how to apply this information to their own programs.
