What is the Natioanl Fish Habitat Partnership bar

National Fish Habitat Partnership Logo

The National Fish Habitat Partnership works to conserve fish habitat nationwide, leveraging federal, state, and private funding sources to achieve the greatest impact on fish populations through priority conservation projects. NFHP implements the National Fish Habitat Action Plan and supports grassroots Fish Habitat Partnerships (FHPs) across the U.S.

Habitat threats, and/or localized salmon declines and habitat degradation, have spurred the formation of several FHPs in Alaska: Mat-Su Basin Salmon Habitat PartnershipKenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership, Southwest Alaska Salmon Habitat Partnership and Southeast Alaska Fish Habitat Partnership. These FHPs help identify and fund local projects that benefit Alaska’s native fishes and their habitat.

Other FHPs of relevance to Alaska include the Western Native Trout Initiative and two candidates: North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership and Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership.
