National Fish Habitat Partnership

The National Fish Habitat Partnership is a nationwide, partnership-based approach to increase existing fish habitat conservation efforts. NOAA Fisheries’ involvement with the plan encourages collaboration between public agencies, private organizations, and citizens to provide large-scale geographic benefits. With a network of regional partnerships setting priorities based on science and strategic collaboration, the plan provides the groundwork to conserve habitats vital to coastal and marine fisheries.

The plan is:

  • Non-regulatory and voluntary
  • Locally and regionally based, driven by grassroots partners
  • Focused on protection, restoration, and enhancement in key watersheds
  • Science based
  • Linked nationally
  • Sustainable and accountable
