File The use of hatchery technology for the conservation of Pacific and Atlantic salmon
Abstract: Hatchery technology has been employed for the conservation of Pacific (Oncorhynchus spp.) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) for over 140 years. The initial societal paradigm was that nature is inefficient and hatcheries could be used to conserve stocks that were over utilized or suffering habitat degradation. Although these early hatcheries failed to meet their conservation objectives, they succeeded in developing the spawning-to-swimup fry culture technology used today. In the 1930s the paradigm shifted to artificial and natural production being equally effective and led to the closure of Federal hatcheries in areas with intact freshwater habitat. Hatcheries were maintained to mitigate for habitat loss from hydropower development. With the development of cost effective smolt production technology by 1960, the paradigm returned to nature being inefficient and ushered in the massive conservation utilization production of Pacific salmon that continues to this day. The early 1990s saw another paradigm shift with nature’s inefficiency recognized as being the foundation for evolution to maintain the fitness of salmon in their natural environment. This shift gave rise to a focus for hatchery technology to preserve stocks in their native habitats. Using hatcheries for preservation–conservation has become the norm for Atlantic salmon in the USA and Atlantic Canada and for Pacific salmon stocks listed under the Endangered Species Act in the USA or as species at risk in Canada.

Action Teams
The Framework consists of seven action teams. Teams include scientists and managers from federal, tribal and state agencies with specific skills and expertise. They may also include outside experts who provide technical, scientific, or feasibility information.

Informing and Engaging the Public
We are very interested in seeking public comments on our activities as well as the opportunity to hear about complementary activities being undertaken by others on behalf of salmon. To facilitate this information exchange, we intend to hold annual meetings during which we will describe the activities we have undertaken over the past year, the status of wild salmon, and the plans for the coming year. We also created this centralized website to gather all the various information related to Atlantic salmon from the many partners involved in the restoration effort.

Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework
The Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework was a partnership between state, tribal, and federal resource agencies working together to identify and implement management actions with the greatest potential to further the recovery of Atlantic salmon. The Framework and implementation strategy was drafted by seven action teams which addressed key factors for salmon recovery. Because the recovery plan was undergoing revisions following the expanded listing, and listing of critical habitat in 2009 as well as because new information about threats to the species was emerging, the framework served as an interim strategy for the government and tribal agencies to follow. These action teams include scientists and managers from federal, tribal and state agencies with specific skills and expertise. They may also include outside experts who provided technical, scientific, or feasibility information on a case by case basis. As the new recovery plan was drafted and reaching completion, a decision was made to continue using the recovery action teams to organize or "govern" the complex and multi agency/multi party recovery efforts.
