Atlantic Coastal Habitat Fish Partnership

Catalyzed by the Commission in 2006, the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) is an assembly of state, federal, tribal, and non-governmental groups whose mission is to conserve habitat for Atlantic coast diadromous, estuarine-dependent, and coastal fish species. ACFHP’s area of focus extends from the headwaters of coastally draining rivers to the edge of the continental shelf from Maine to the Florida Keys, with a particular emphasis on estuarine environments. ACFHP addresses habitat threats with a broad and coordinated approach, leveraging resources from many agencies and organizations to make a difference for fish habitat. ACFHP operates under the purview of the National Fish Habitat Partnership. Click here to learn more about ACFHP.
