Action: Marine Area 1 will reopen to salmon fishing seven days a week starting Sept. 7.

Effective date: Sept. 7, through Sept. 30, 2009.

Species affected: Chinook, coho and pink salmon

Location: Marine Area 1 from Leadbetter Point to Cape Falcon, Oregon.

Reason for action: The Marine Area 1 coho sub-area quota has enough coho left over to provide more angling opportunity.
