National Fish Habitat Partnership / Washington, DC / June 6, 2017

Through ESRI, the National Fish Habitat Partnership released a story map, “Our Fish, Our Future,” highlighting our partnerships and projects across the United States.  This national story map builds on earlier maps produced by the Western Native Trout and the Alaska Fish Habitat Partnerships.

The National Fish Habitat Partnership story map provides background on the momentum surrounding the National Fish Habitat Partnership effort from its beginning in 2006.  The story map also highlights the country across five regions, listing watersheds, exploring projects and the range of our 20 Fish Habitat Partnerships across the country.
