Protecting Fish and Wildlife Resources

The Service uses its authorities under the National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Water Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act and Federal Power Act to protect fish and wildlife resources. Protection of these resources is accomplished through early coordination between the Service and other federal agencies on project planning and design to minimize potential environmental impacts and provide for successful mitigation for unavoidable impacts.

Coordination may include projects constructed by Federal agencies, permitted under the Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program and projects licensed for non-Federal hydropower projects, as well as various federal actions on and off federal lands.
