Abstract Pacific salmon and steelhead are significant biological, cultural, and economic assets to Pacific Coast states and tribes and to the United States as a whole. Changes in coastal ecosystems, from both human and natural factors, have contributed to the decline of Pacific salmonids since the early 1900s. Certain land-use, water-use, fishery harvest, and hatchery practices have increased the vulnerability of salmonid populations and resulted in the listing of many populations as threatened or endangered species under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). Congress has recognized the importance of ensuring the recovery and sustainability of salmonids and since 2000 has provided funding to NOAAs National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to manage the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund (PCSRF). This 2009 Report to Congress documents activities and progress under the PCSRF since FY 2000.
