The National Fish Habitat Action Plan is an unprecedented attempt to address and unseen crisis for fish nationwide: loss and degradation of their watery homes.
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.
The National Fish Habitat Partnership is made up of 20 (local, regionally-based, or species-based) partnerships that implement the National Fish Habitat Action Plan. These partnerships are composed of local and regional community groups, non-profit organizations, watershed groups, Native American tribes, local, state and federal agencies, and individuals. Examples of conservation actions include planting stream-side vegetation important to sustaining the health of riparian and aquatic plants and animals, protecting and restoring fish passage and other voluntary measures that help avoid and minimize negative effects that could result from industrial and agriculture practices and livestock.
