Partnership - Hawaii Fish Habitat Partnership Anchialine pools represent an inland waterbody type that is widespread but threatened throughout the Hawaiian Islands and is a key habitat type of concern to the Hawaii Fish Habitat Partnership. Anchialine pools, also known as fishponds in Hawaii, are near the coast and are land-locked bodies of water that have connections both to the sea, typically by high tides, as well as to local freshwater. These systems have been used for thousands of years for fish production by Native Hawaiians. The majority of remaining fishpond pools are located on the Kona coast and southern coastlines of the Big Island, the southeast coast of Maui, and on several small and widely separated...

Partnership - Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership The Harpeth River drains nearly 900 square miles in middle Tennessee and flows through one of the fastest growing regions in the country. It is a state designated Scenic River in Davidson County, within 30 minutes of downtown Nashville. The river is one of the most archeologically and historically significant rivers in the state. However, the project area was listed on the U.S. EPA Section 303(d) list for siltation and habitat alteration, nutrient enrichment and low dissolved oxygen. Low dissolved oxygen was particularly an issue above a 6.2 foot low head dam near Franklin, Tennessee. Dissolved oxygen measurements at this dam were below state standards, and...

Partnership - Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership The Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership (ORBFHP) identified the Eel River in northern Indiana as a priority area based on their science-based modeling process. Two fish, the Greater Redhorse and the Redside Dace, and a number of mussels that are classified as imperiled in Indiana exist in this river. Partnership involvement in this priority watershed has been instrumental in the establishment of critical conservation partnerships with the goal of a holistic approach to watershed ecological integrity in the Eel River. Partners engaged in collaboration conservation of the Eel River watershed include: the Manchester University Environmental Studies...

Partnership - Western Native Trout Initiative The Redband Trout, a group of Rainbow Trout, are remarkable fish. Some live as freshwater fish and some as anadromous fish that occupy both fresh and saltwater habitats during different stages of their lives. The interior Redband Trout is listed as a “Species of Conservation Concern” in most of its range. Its historic range covers eastern Washington and Oregon, northeastern California, central and southwestern Idaho, northwestern Montana, and parts of northern Nevada. Within this broad area, Redband Trout habitat can vary from higher elevation cold-water mountain streams to lower elevation warmer desert-type streams that have periods of low stream flows and high water...

Partnership - Desert Fish Habitat Partnership Shoshone Pupfish are one of the most imperiled species in the Death Valley region due to their natural rarity, historic disruption of their habitats, lack of replication of the one remaining population, and genetic effects of small population size. Shoshone Spring and wetlands have been owned by one family for over 50 years. Endemic Shoshone Pupfish were considered extinct by 1969, but rediscovered in a ditch near the springs in 1986. A single pond was built and stocked with 75 of these fish, believed to be the last of their kind. The purpose of the project was to construct two new additional habitats, one secluded in a mesquite bosque, and one in a landscaped...

Partnership - Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture Historically, Nash Stream, New Hampshire was known as a high quality wild Brook Trout stream that provided exceptional angling opportunities. Unfortunately in 1969, the dam used to release water from Nash Bog Pond for log drives failed sending a torrent of water akin to the 500-year flood event down Nash Stream. Immediately thereafter and in response to the dam failure, stretches of Nash Stream were straightened and its banks made higher by bulldozers. Consequently, much of the instream and riparian habitat was altered to the detriment of wild Brook Trout and other fish species. Additionally, undersized culverts were placed in many essential Brook Trout spawning...

Partnerships - Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership and Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture The Upper Patten Stream Watershed near Surry, Maine historically supported a thriving commercial Alewife fishery and was used by many other anadromous fish species including Blueback Herring, American Eel, sea-run Brook Trout, and Atlantic Salmon. The Route 172 road crossing caused a four-foot drop without a jumping pool, creating a significant fish movement barrier. The road was the only barrier between Patten Bay and the upper drainage, located just upstream of the estuary. Patten Stream's Alewives were nearly eliminated, surviving mainly due to volunteers who carried fish over the barrier in nets so they may reach...

Partnerships - Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership and Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership Both the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership (SARP) and Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) supported marsh restoration/living shoreline projects on the Tolomato River in the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTMNERR) near St. Augustine, Florida. These projects are located on the southern portion of the Guana Peninsula and are creating a contiguous swath of restored marsh that is: improving and enhancing fish habitat; preventing shoreline erosion; and fostering opportunities for community stewardship and involvement that will provide benefits for years to come. The...

Partnership - Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership Dams and man-made barriers pose to impeding the movement of fish and blocking fish from their spawning grounds and habitat connectivity is listed as a top priority of the Southeast Aquatic Habitat Plan, the strategic plan of the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership (SARP). To help address this issue, SARP, together with the Nature Conservancy (TNC) has completed a large scale assessment of dams in the Southeastern United States. The Southeast Aquatic Connectivity Assessment Project ( SEACAP), funded by the South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SALCC), supports planners and managers in their efforts to target fish passage and other aquatic...

Partnership – Great Lakes Basin Fish Habitat Partnership The nearly 300 square mile Boardman River watershed is located in Grand Traverse and Kalkaska Counties in northwest Michigan. With the exception of the extreme lower river and three impoundments, the Boardman River is an oligotrophic river system with excellent water quality characterized by cold temperatures, high dissolved oxygen concentrations, and nutrients provided by distant inputs. Of the approximately 179 miles of river and tributary streams in the Boardman system, 36 miles are designated as a “Blue Ribbon” trout stream, providing premier fish habitat. Anglers from near and far come to enjoy the predominantly resident Brook and Brown Trout fishery,...

Partnership - Desert Fish Habitat Partnership The Muddy River is a major river in southern Nevada about 30 miles NE of Las Vegas. Many tourist destinations exist along and near the Muddy River, including: Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge and Warm Springs Natural Area at its headwaters; the towns of Moapa, Logandale, and Overton downstream; many scenic destinations such as Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Valley of Fire State Park; and several established and proposed wilderness areas. The Moapa Dace ( Moapa coriacea) is an endemic minnow occurring only in the upper Muddy River system. Requiring temperatures of at least 86° F for reproduction, the species is highly dependent on access to warm springs...

Partnership - Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership Eleven of the fourteen species, subspecies, and other unique forms of black bass are found in the southeastern U.S. and nowhere else in the world. Several undescribed species and subspecies of black bass are also found in the region and almost all are in need of conservation measures to prevent them from becoming imperiled. In an effort to focus and coordinate actions to secure healthy, fishable populations of the diversity of black basses, the Southeastern Aquatic Restoration Partnership (SARP) led the development of the Native Black Bass Initiative (NBBI). The NBBI is guided by a 10-year, $30 million plan that was assembled in partnership with the National...

Partnership – Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership The Green River and Green River Lake provide aquatic habitat in the Green River Wildlife Management Area near Campbellsville, KY. The river is in declining condition due to severe erosion over almost four decades. Its rehabilitation will allow it to support improved populations of white bass, smallmouth bass, rock bass, flathead catfish, walleye, and muskellunge along with providing important sportfishing opportunities for anglers. A 1,400 linear foot section of the river bank was chosen as the site for restoration, due to its rapid rate of erosion - a rate of 20 feet per year. Sediment loss from this section of the river bank fell into the river and eventually...

Partnership - Matanuska-Susitna Basin Salmon Habitat Partnership Alexander Creek Watershed, a tributary of the Susitna River, was formerly a significant sport fishing area covering hundreds of square miles in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. In the late 1990s, this system was considered to be a highly productive Chinook and Coho Salmon habitat, and, arguably, the premier Chinook Salmon sport fishing area in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Today, however, due to low returns, the Alexander Creek drainage is closed to Chinook Salmon harvest, and Alexander Creek Chinook Salmon are considered a stock of concern by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. This decline is largely due to the introduction of Northern Pike (...

Partnership - Fishers and Farmers Partnership The Boone River Watershed is included in the Mississippi River Basin Initiative and is a priority watershed of the Fishers & Farmers Partnership, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the Nature Conservancy (TNC). The Boone River is a tributary of the Des Moines River in north-central Iowa. Current and past land use practices in the Boone River Watershed have affected both water flows and currents through excessive siltation. As a result, oxbow habitat has been degraded and fragmented and water quality impaired. Oxbows are wetlands, ponds or lakes, often crescent shaped, that form when a stream reach becomes separated from the main stream when sedimentation...
