Enhancing native fisheries through the USFWS Propagation Program in Region 6

Duration

June 2015 - September 2017

Narrative

The goal of this project is to align our R6 production hatcheries with national priorities establishing conservation propagation facilities that assist with landscape conservation and state partnership needs. The specific objectives are to: 1) develop a decision-support tool to identify and prioritize conservation propagation for threatened, endangered, imperiled and declining species and 2) work in conjunction with our state partners to coordinate and balance recovery and restoration efforts with recreational fishing opportunities. The identified priority species will be linked with the most appropriate conservation propagation facilities in R6.
