The California (Coastal) Monitoring Plan is designed to inform salmon and steelhead recovery, conservation, and management activities. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife and NOAA Fisheries are leading the implementation of this Plan in watersheds from California’s border with Mexico north to the Oregon border, including San Francisco and Humboldt Bay tributaries.
