Coalition Formed to Advance the Recovery of Viable Native Fish Populations

The Central Valley Salmon Habitat Partnership, comprised of state and federal agencies, conservation organizations, farmers, water agencies, and fishermen, was recently formed to advance the recovery of viable Central Valley salmon and steelhead populations.  This diverse coalition of partners brings existing salmon and steelhead recovery efforts together, prioritizing projects to support the rebound of these native fish populations.

Working across disciplines, the Partnership will develop science-based objectives and prioritized actions to implement them, to advance the recovery and maintenance of viable, self-sustaining salmon and steelhead populations, and also help restore and maintain robust and commercially and recreationally viable numbers of salmon.  Partnership members will provide expertise on a broad range of issues such as scientific study and securing permits, allowing the Partnership to move from concept to implementation quickly and efficiently.
