Watershed Plans: Key Part of Puget Sound Salmon Recovery
In 2005, local partners reached a major milestone when they completed watershed-based habitat recovery plans for the major watersheds in King County.
These watershed plans make up a key part of the draft Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan (external link).
Key questions about funding and coordination of habitat efforts with other recovery efforts -- those addressing hatchery and harvest reforms -- are being answered at the Puget Sound level (external link).
In January 2007, the federal government approved the Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan as the plan for recovering Chinook salmon. People across Puget Sound are now working to carry out its recommendations. Implementing the Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan also is an essential part of overall efforts to save Puget Sound.
