Utah Fish and Wildlife Management Assistance Office

The Utah Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, formerly known as the Roosevelt Fish and Wildlife Management Assistance Office, was originally established in 1971 to provide fish and wildlife technical assistance to Indian tribes in Utah in order to fulfill its trust responsibility.

The Utah Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office provides technical assistance to the Southern Ute Tribe of southwestern Colorado, the Northern Ute Tribe in northeastern Utah, the Paiute Tribe in southwestern Utah, and the Goshute Tribes of Nevada and Utah. Technical assistance activities consist of working closely with the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs and Indian Tribes to better manage tribal fishery and wildlife resources. The Office also provides technical assistance to Hill Air Force Base, Ouray National Wildlife Refuge, Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery, and the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fishes Recovery Program.
