Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan

(when prompted in the sign-up process, select this update under "Fishing Resources")

The Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan (CMP) is being developed to understand and determine the fish management needs for the conservation of anadromous salmonids along much of the Oregon coast. The CMP will also be used to determine fish management actions relative to present and future fishing opportunities in this area.

The CMP will address the following Species Management Units (SMU): Chinook salmon (spring and fall populations), chum salmon, steelhead (summer and winter populations), and cutthroat trout. The area covered by the plan ranges from the Necanicum River in the north to Elk River in the south. A conservation assessment and plan for coho salmon have already been developed and adopted by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (OFWC). Therefore, the CMP will not assess or address coho populations, although some coho information will be included for a complete “picture” of all anadromous salmonids.

Given the inherent complexity of incorporating the management of multiple species for both conservation and utilization (e.g., harvest and hatcheries) purposes into a plan, a time-sequenced public process is being used to ensure stakeholders and the general public have multiple opportunities for review and input as ODFW develops the CMP. The initial focus of plan development was on technical analyses and preparation of an initial draft plan (dated 6/5/13, available below) that depicts the full, coast-wide conservation and utilization approach across basins and species. The initial draft CMP was developed with the input of four Stakeholder Teams distributed along the coast, an independent, scientific opinion survey west of the Cascades, and habitat experts working on the coast. The stakeholders, an independent science team (i.e., the Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team [IMST]), and the public have reviewed and commented on initial drafts of the CMP, which is currently being revised again for presentation to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission for final review and adoption.

In a related process, public proposals, submitted as part of the 2012 public process to develop statewide angling regulations (which will take effect in 2013), that addressed conservation or fishery management issues for species covered in the CMP received initial ODFW staff review. Those proposals which passed review were deferred into the CMP development process in order to assure that they did not conflict with the direction which will be established by this CMP. These deferred proposals will be considered and evaluated during the plan development process. Proposals that are consistent with the CMP will be presented to the OFWC for inclusion in angling regulations taking effect in 2014 or 2015.

Opinion Survey Report

Older Information

Opinion Survey

ODFW worked with the Oregon State University Survey Research Center to develop two questionnaires to gauge public opinion about fish management in the area covered by the Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan.  The OSU Survey Research Center then carried out a public opinion survey by randomly selecting the addresses of individuals to receive one of the questionnaires, mailing out the questionnaires, following-up if needed, and collecting responses.  The OSU Survey Research Center is currently in the process of analyzing the results and writing a final report. 

The General Public Survey questionnaire was sent to 1,500 randomly selected residents of Western Oregon that did not buy a fishing license in 2012.  The Angler Survey questionnaire was sent to 6,000 randomly selected anglers who live in Western Oregon and purchased a Combined Angling Tag (i.e., Salmon/Steelhead Tag) in 2012.  In addition to the questionnaires, a Survey Map was provided to all of the randomly selected respondents.  The map is referenced in both questionnaires and shows the area of the coast and major basins/populations covered by the Plan.  The questionnaires were sent out in mid-January 2013 and the completed questionnaires were received and compiled through the end of March. A report summarizing the results of these surveys is located in the Documents section (above).
