National Fish Habitat Partnerships

The mission of the National Fish Habitat Partnership is to protect, restore and enhance the nation's fish and aquatic communities through partnerships that foster fish habitat conservation and improve the quality of life for the American people. Within the framework of this national partnership, the Pacific Region supports five multi-state or regional fish habitat partnerships. These partnerships, each with a specific focus, bring together a variety of partners to collaboratively leverage resources and maximize conservation for fish and aquatic ecosystems.
