Conserving Fish Habitat from Whitewater to Bluewater
With funding from a Multistate Conservation Grant, three fish habitat partnerships (FHPs)– the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP), the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnerhip (SARP), and the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV)–will work together on three objectives: 1) To advance each partnership’s habitat assessments; 2) To coordinate outreach activities to strengthen and expand the base of conservation delivery partners; and 3) To implement each of the individual FHP’s strategic plans.
This project will contribute to the achievement of National Fish Habitat Action Plan goals and objectives, foster implementation of NFHAP Board guidelines, and support coordination between ACFHP, SARP and EBTJV as well as with the NFHAP Board and Science Data Committee and the newly formed Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs). The states, and their respective fish and wildlife agencies, that will benefit from the enhanced coordination and assessment capabilities provided by this project are as follows: ME, VT, NH, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, OH, DE, WV, MD, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA, AR, TN, KY, TX, OK, and MO.
