8/28/17 ACTION NOTICE- Recreational Salmon Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. : NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, has taken in-season action with respect to the recreational ocean salmon fishery in the area from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain:
ACTION TAKEN: An impact neutral transfer of the remaining coho quota from the June 24-July 31 mark selective coho fishery to the September non mark selective coho fishery was approved. This transfer resulted in an increase of 1,900 coho in the September 2-30 Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. recreational non mark selective Coho quota.
RATIONALE: The preseason intent in the ocean salmon season development was to allow for any remaining quota from the summer mark selective season to be transferred to the September non mark selective season on an impact neutral basis for critical stocks. There were 11,814 Coho Salmon remaining on the Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. recreational mark selective quota of 18,000 coho. This resulted in a modeled conversion that resulted in 1,900 coho being added to the September non mark selective season, and a resulting increase in the September quota from 6,000 to 7,900 Coho Salmon.
