Atlantic Salmon Recovery Plan

Atlantic Salmon Recovery Plan

To help identify and guide species recovery needs, section 4(f) of the Endangered Species Act directs the Secretaries to develop and implement recovery plans for listed species. A recovery plan must include (1) a description of site-specific management actions necessary to conserve the species; (2) objective, measurable criteria that, when met, will allow the species to be removed from the endangered and threatened species list; and (3) estimates of the time and funding required to achieve the plan’s goals.

Atlantic Salmon Recovery Proposal Guidelines

(Note: This is not a funding proposal). This is an interim template for proposing Atlantic salmon related projects within the Gulf of Maine DPS. Proposals may be required if a project proponent is requesting Atlantic salmon to conduct a study, or requesting agency support or resources. The GOM DPS is divided into 3 Salmon Habitat Recovery Units (SHRUs). Each SHRU is managed by a team under the Atlantic salmon program's Collaborative Management Strategy (CMS). Project proponents should first discuss their project with the appropriate SHRU Team or, if a project is not specific to a SHRU, the project proponent should first contact that CMS's administrative coordinator. For information on project proposals contact: Dan Kircheis at Dan.Kircheis@noaa.gov (CMS administrative Coordinator)
