NOAA Fisheries and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are accepting proposals for projects that support the protection of coastal and marine fish habitats through the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP). Protection under NFHP consists of voluntary and non-regulatory actions to maintain or prevent the decline of aquatic habitat and the aquatic resources that depend on those habitats. The deadline for pre-proposals is May 1, 2012.
The National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP) is a diverse group of organizations and individuals that seek to protect, restore, and enhance the nation’s fish populations and their aquatic communities through partnerships that foster fish habitat conservation and improve the quality of life for the American people.
NFHP carries out this mission through regional Fish Habitat Partnerships which identify priority habitats, develop achievable conservation strategies, and implement voluntary, non-regulatory conservation projects.
