• NOAA Fisheries 2010 Supplemental FCRPS BiOp

    May 20, 2010:  At the urging of the Court, federal agencies spent three months formally integrating the Adaptive Management Implementation Plan into the 2008 FCRPS BiOp. The agencies thoroughly reviewed the BiOp and the science behind it, and consulted federal and independent scientists to be sure that it provides the right framework and actions to protect Northwest salmon. Two years into the implementation of this BiOp, the region's efforts to protect salmon are on course. Last year alone, 9,609 miles of wetland habitat were protected and 244 miles of streams were reopened to fish. We've made much progress and completion of this legal process now prepares us to make much more.
