The primary mission of the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Resources Office is to coordinate a multi-agency state/federal/basin commission effort with the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York, the Susquehanna River and Delaware River Basin Commissions and other public and private partners that have an interest in restoration of American shad and other migratory fishes to their historic range in the Susquehanna and Delaware River Basins.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announces that a new Migratory Fish Management and Restoration Plan for the Susquehanna River Basin (Plan) was approved by a unanimous vote of the Susquehanna River Anadromous Fish Restoration Cooperative (SRAFRC), Policy Committee. The new Plan will be used by SRAFRC and others in managing and restoring migratory fish resources in the Susquehanna River Basin. The full Plan and a News Release are available at the links below.
