The Yakima Basin Fish and Wildlife Recovery Board
has developed plans for the protection and restoration of salmon in the Yakima Basin.
The Subbasin Plan guides how BPA should spend funding in the basin for restoration of salmon that have been effected by mainstem Columbia River Dams. The Recovery Plan focus on Steelhead and Bull Trout, which have been listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
Both these plans have an effect on Water Resources Division resources and management of riverine habitats in the Basin and Yakima County
The objectives of the Board are to restore sustainable and harvestable populations of salmon, steelhead, bull trout and other at risk fish and wildlife species through the collaborative, economically sensitive efforts, combined resources, and wise resource management of the Yakima Basin.
