  14. 15. Nisqually Goals – long term (next 100 years) <ul><li>Assure natural production of fall Chinook in perpetuity by providing high quality functioning habitat and by promoting the development of locally adapted, functioning populations. </li></ul><ul><li>Assure sustainable harvest opportunities. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide significant contributions to ecosystem functions </li></ul><ul><li>Secure and enhance natural production of all salmonids </li></ul><ul><li>Assure the economic, cultural, and social benefits are perpetually sustained. </li></ul>Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
