The Southeast Alaska Fish Habitat Partnership works to foster cooperative fish habitat conservation in freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems across the southern panhandle of Alaska including the dynamic watersheds and waterways that make up the Alexander Archipelago. Covering nearly 17 million acres of this region is the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States and a key producer of salmon. The Partnership’s mission is to support cooperative fish habitat conservation, restoration, and management across the region with consideration of economic, social, and cultural interests of local communities in its efforts. The partnership’s three priority conservation goals are to 1) protect fish habitat in freshwater systems, estuaries and nearshore-marine areas in Southeast, 2) maintain water quality and quantity in those areas, and 3) restore and enhance fragmented and degraded fish habitats in impacted areas. The Southeast Alaska Fish Habitat Partnership was recognized by the Board in March 2014.
