Draft Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework: 3/2011

The Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment of Atlantic salmon is listed under the Endangered Species Act and is at critically low levels. There is a strong public desire and legal mandate to recover this species which will result in benefits to the ecosystem and to the general public. Efforts to date have not successfully recovered the species. Given limited resources and competing priorities, there is a need to ensure that state and federal resource agencies coordinate closely to agree on a collective strategy to identify and implement the highest priority management actions and scientific studies that have the greatest potential to further our recovery objectives.
