Draft Environmental Impact Statement 

Duwamish-Green River Salmon and Steelhead Hatchery Programs 

A draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) analyzing salmon and steelhead hatchery programs in the Duwamish-Green River basin in Puget Sound under a range of alternatives is available for public comment. Ten hatchery and genetic management plans describing the hatchery programs have been submitted jointly to NOAA Fisheries by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, and Suquamish Tribe. 

The DEIS provides information for NOAA Fisheries, hatchery operators, and the public about the potential effects, positive and negative, of the salmon and steelhead hatchery programs on Endangered Species Act (ESA)-listed and non-listed fish and wildlife species, their habitats, water, socioeconomics, and environmental justice resources.

Concurrent with this review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), NOAA Fisheries is reviewing hatchery programs under the ESA. Analyses under NEPA do not indicate whether hatchery programs meet ESA requirements. Rather, this NEPA analysis provides information about the current and anticipated environmental effects of operating the 10 salmon and steelhead hatchery programs under a range of alternatives.

To access the DEIS and more information

You can access the DEIS and information on the project at the NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region website at
