SEAKFHP is a collaborative effort that seeks to implement comprehensive conservation strategies for freshwater and coastal aquatic ecosystems of Southeast Alaska that will conserve and sustain the region’s fish, fish habitat, fisheries-based economy, and culture. SEAKFHP works to achieve this vision by providing information and coordination services to partners and fostering collaborative engagement of planning, assessment and on-the-ground implementation work that protects and restores fish habitat across Southeast Alaska.
Projects considered for funding address science-based habitat protection, restoration, and enhancement activities that benefit freshwater and coastal aquatic habitats in Southeast Alaska and are addressed under SEAKFHP’s Strategic Action Plan: https://seakfhp.org/seakfhp-strategic-action-plan/
NFHP funds can be used for on-the-ground habitat projects and related project assessment, design, monitoring, and outreach activities. Eligible projects may include riparian or instream habitat protection, enhancement, and restoration; barrier removal or construction; range-wide population or watershed habitat assessments to prioritize and plan habitat conservation; and habitat-related community outreach and education actions.
