Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership

Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership Working together to conserve coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fish habitat The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership is a coast-wide collaborative effort to accelerate the conservation of habitat for native Atlantic coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fishes.

We are a Partnership consisting of resource managers, scientists and professionals representing 30 different state, federal, tribal, non-governmental and other entities. We work in areas stretching from Maine to the Florida Keys, and from the headwaters of coastally draining rivers to the edge of the continental shelf, with a focus in estuarine environments
