Welcome to the ODFW Salmon and Steelhead Recovery Tracker

Fish and wildlife abound in Oregon - our rich and varied landscapes are home to a diversity of wildlife, providing rich opportunities for fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. Protecting and enhancing the state's wealth of fish, wildlife, and habitat for use and enjoyment by present and future generations is at the heart of everything we do.

Fish Division Mission: The Department is charged by statute (ORS 506.036) to protect and propagate fish in the state. This includes direct responsibility for regulating harvest of fish, protection of fish, enhancement of fish populations through habitat improvement, and the rearing and release of fish into public waters. ODFW maintains hatcheries throughout the state to provide fish for program needs.

The State of Oregon maintains conservation and recovery plans for populations of salmon and steelhead listed as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). These conservation and recovery plans set goals for measurable viability criteria. The ODFW Salmon Recovery Tracker website provides information on the health of Oregon's anadromous salmon and steelhead populations. Website users can explore and download information related to salmon conservation and recovery in Oregon.

The Salmon Recovery Tracker was built to make it easier for the public to explore the health of salmon and steelhead populations and access critical underlying data. It's a first step in helping the state open its information to the public in an easy-to-use medium.
