Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership
Board recognized January, 2010
Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership is a conservation partnership developing on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. This partnership is working with the National Fish Habitat Action Plan to protect, restore, and enhance our area's fish and aquatic communities.
KPFHP is one of several partnerships developed concurrently with the National Fish Habitat Plan, designed to raise awareness of fish initiatives, assign priorities, and generate annual congressional support to improve aquatic habitat.
National Fish Habitat Action Plan is all about locally-driven efforts that build private and public partnerships to improve fish habitat. Fish Habitat Action Plan partnerships are self-identified, self-organized, and self-directed communities of interest formed around geographic areas, keystone species, or system types.
These partnerships are...
Non-regulatory and voluntary
Locally and regionally based, driven by grassroots partners
Focused on protection, restoration and enhancement in key watersheds
Sustainable and accountable
The Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership was recognized by the Board in January 2010.
