Coastal Coho Stakeholders to meet in Newport
     Date: January 11, 2006
SALEM — Oregon ’s Coastal Coho Stakeholder Team will meet Jan. 20 in Newport to continue working on conservation actions to benefit coastal coho salmon .

The stakeholder team advises both the State of Oregon and the National Marine Fisheries Service on Oregon ’s Coastal Coho Project. Members of the team represent fish conservation, fishing, private land, timber, agricultural, tribal and other interests.

The meeting is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 5p.m. at the Hallmark Inn and Resort, 744 SW Elizabeth Street . Public comments will be accepted at 10:45 a.m.

More information about the Coastal Coho Project and the stakeholder team can be found at www.oregon-plan.org.

This collaborative effort began last year to address coastal coho conservation. The objectives of the project are to:

  • Assess the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds effort to conserve and rebuild coastal coho populations.
  • Use the assessment to assist NOAA Fisheries with a status review.
  • Use the assessment as a basis to seek legal assurances for local participants.
  • Use the assessment as a foundation for developing a conservation plan for coho.

Reasonable accommodations are provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials. Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the ODFW Director’s Office at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6044 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
