LEVEL OF CONCERN: CRITICAL
Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast Coho are critically vulnerable to extinction as wild fish within the next 50-100 years. There has likely been 95% or more decline in numbers since the 1960s in California due to dam construction and habitat degradation from various land use practices.
Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast (SONCC) Coho salmon populations have likely declined 95% from their historical abundance. There are general indications of continued long-term decline and/or high variability in numbers from larger streams.
