Return to Archived Pages

This final report summarizes the scientific conclusions of the NMFS Biological Review Team regarding the updated status of 26 ESA-listed Evolutionarily Significant Units (ESUs) of salmon and steelhead (and one candidate species ESU) from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and California. These ESUs were listed following a series of status reviews conducted during the decade of the 1990s. This report followed a draft report that was circulated for technical review and comments by state, tribal, and federal comanagers. Because of its size, it is broken up into several sections to facilitate downloading and copying.
