Anadromous Fish Restoration Program watershed map

Document - image/jpeg

This map shows the watersheds under the jurisdiction of the Anadromous Fish Restoration Program in California's Central Valley. The goal of the AFRP is to make all reasonable efforts to at least double natural production of anadromous fish in Central Valley streams on a long-term, sustainable basis. The AFRP is a result of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, which directs the Department of the Interior to attempt the doubling goal for fishes like salmon and sturgeon while also maintaining a reasonable balance among competing demands among fish and wildlife, agriculture, industry and municipal needs.
