CSF hosts a Breakfast Briefing on Capitol Hill to discuss important federal policies for the sportsmen's community.
Topic: National Fish Habitat Conservation Through Partnerships
Congressional authorization of National Fish Habitat Partnerships (NFHP) is critically important to clarify the roles of the partnerships (between the NFHP Board and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) and to secure an avenue of consistent funding for on-the-ground fish and aquatic habitat conservation in the states. This voluntary, on-the-ground, state-driven and locally based successful program provides a platform for fish and aquatic managers to restore and enhance fish habitat and populations in concert with local communities across the entire country. Providing Congressional oversight over the financial resources will also help ensure long term, dedicated funding is provided to the NFHP.
