We have been able to initiate at least some on-the-ground conservation efforts for what we perceived to be the most threatened species, (see papers 3 and 7 of this project's publications list), but much work remains to be done. We hope that our recently completed formal conservation assessments for each of the species we are working to describe will help spark additional efforts and generate much-needed funding. They should be published in the IUCN Red List (search for "Oncorhynchus") in late 2019.
