Partnerships and Accountability

Partnerships and accountability are essential elements of our vision for effective fisheries conservation. Many agencies, organizations, and private individuals are involved in fisheries conservation and management, but no one can do it alone. Together, we and our partners combine efforts and expertise to tackle challenges facing fisheries conservation. We have many partners for aquatic resource projects and initiatives that are currently conducted in the Midwest Region.

The success of these partnerships depends on strong, two-way communications and accountability. Our goals are to maintain, develop, and improve long-term partnerships with States, Tribes, other federal agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other Service Programs for collaborative conservation strategies for aquatic resources, and to report short and long-term progress toward meeting resource goals for fish and other aquatic resources.
