Salmon Recovery in the West Sound

The vision is to protect and improve estuary, nearshore, intertidal and subtidal habitat function to support harvestable stocks of Puget Sound Chinook. Functioning nearshore, estuarine, intertidal, and subtidal habitats in West Sound are crucial to the migration and rearing success of juvenile Chinook transiting Puget Sound en route to the Pacific Ocean.

As articulated in the 2005 East Kitsap (West Sound) chapter of the Puget Sound Chinook Recovery Plan, the primary strategies underpinning West Sound Chinook recovery are:

-Protect nearshore functions
-Restore shorelines
-Implement education and outreach
-Address culverts and fish passage barriers

Additionally there are strategies in development for Puget Sound steelhead in our freshwater ecosystems.
