Recovery means that listed species and their ecosystems are restored, and their future secured, so that the protections of the ESA are no longer necessary. The ESA specifies that recovery plans must include: (1) A description of management actions necessary to achieve the plan’s goals for the conservation and survival of the species; (2) objective, measurable criteria which, when met, would result in the species being removed from the list; and (3) estimates of time and costs required to achieve the plan’s goal and the intermediate steps towards that goal. Section 4(f) of the ESA, as amended in 1988, requires that public notice and an opportunity for public review and comment be provided during recovery plan development. NMFS is hereby soliciting relevant information on SONCC Coho Salmon ESU populations and their freshwater/marine habitats. In addition, NMFS is soliciting comment on the contents of the proposed recovery plan. Persons wishing to review the Draft Plan can obtain an electronic copy (i.e., CD ROM) from Ms. Cynthia Anderson by calling (707) 825–5162 or by emailing a request to Cynthia.Anderson@noaa.gov with the subject line ‘‘CD ROM Request for SONCC Coho Salmon Draft Recovery Plan.’’ Electronic copies of the Draft Plan are also available on line on the following NMFS Web site: http:// swr.nmfs.noaa.gov/recovery.
