Abstract

In 2003, with the input of stakeholders, the California Department of Fish and Game created the Recovery Strategy for California Coho Salmon, a guide for the process of recovering coho salmon on the north and central coasts of California. In this article we summarize our estimates of both the fiscal cost and the socioeconomic impacts of implementing the Coho Salmon Recovery Strategy (Recovery Strategy) for the Central California Coast (CCC) Coho Evolutionary Significant Unit (ESU) and the California portion of the Southern Oregon-Northern California Coast (SONCC) Coho ESU.
