Statewide Data

Scientific Evaluation of Recovery Work Must be Fully Funded

The indicators in this report tell us about the status of fish populations, watershed health, and implementation of recovery and sustainability plans, statewide. For details at the regional scale, please visit the individual region pages on this site.

The indicators tell us how we are doing and whether we need to adjust recovery plans. Although scientific monitoring and evaluation of recovery investments was written into recovery plans from the beginning, they have never been fully funded.
