Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership

Board recognized January, 2012

The Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership’s (PMEP) mission is to protect, enhance, and restore ecological habitats within estuaries and nearshore marine environments to sustain healthy native fish communities and support sustainable human uses that depend on healthy fish populations.

The PMEP originated in 2009 when representatives from Oregon, Washington and California agencies and non-governmental entities met to discuss the need to protect and restore habitat for fish species that use estuaries and nearshore marine areas.

Vision - provide for healthy native fish populations in functional, resilient estuarine and nearshore marine ecosystems in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Our mission is to work with partners to protect, enhance, and restore ecological processes and habitats within estuaries and nearshore marine environments to sustain healthy native fish communities and support sustainable human uses that depend on healthy fish populations.

Partnership priorities are priorities are to protect, restore, and enhance:

- juvenile fish habitat in nearshore marine and estuary habitats;
- tidal wetland-intertidal-subtidal-nearshore connectivity; and water quality and quantity in estuaries and nearshore marine environments.
