To help identify and guide species recovery needs, section 4(f) of the Endangered Species Act directs the Secretaries to develop and implement recovery plans for listed species. A recovery plan must include (1) a description of site-specific management actions necessary to conserve the species; (2) objective, measurable criteria that, when met, will allow the species to be removed from the endangered and threatened species list; and (3) estimates of the time and funding required to achieve the plan’s goals.
(Note: This is not a funding proposal). The Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework proposal format is outlined in the attached document. Proposals should be brief but contain all pertinent information. In addition, please attach a synopsis of your work. You may include other attachments as necessary (e.g. full proposal); however, the bulk of our review will focus on the proposal format as outlined below. Other attachments may include a full proposal and any supporting documents you wish to submit. Proposals should be submitted electronically to Christine.Lipsky@noaa.gov (NOAA Fisheries).
