Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework Implementation Strategy: 2011

This implementation plan is part of the Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework. In this document you will find information on the objectives, strategies, and actions of each of the Action Teams (i.e. Stock Assessment, SAAT; Marine and Estuary, MEAT; Connectivity, CAT; Genetic Diversity, GDAT; Conservation Hatchery, CHAT; and Freshwater, FWAT). The Framework’s guiding document provides information on the Governance structure, objectives, short- and long-term recovery strategies, action teams, portfolio selection process, and monitoring implementation. The actions within this plan balance the need to prevent extinction, identify causes and remedies for poor survival, and increase wild production. The actions presented resulted from a review of actions currently being implemented (status quo) by The State of Maine, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and additional actions to benefit Atlantic salmon recovery. There were many worthy actions considered in this process that were not included in this implementation plan. The actions selected represent the path forward for the Framework and do not preclude others from implementing actions that are consistent with Atlantic salmon recovery.
