Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership Updated:05/2019

The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership is a coast-wide collaborative effort to accelerate the conservation of habitat for native Atlantic coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fishes. We are a Partnership consisting of resource managers, scientists and professionals representing 30 different state, federal, tribal, non-governmental and other entities. We work in areas stretching from Maine to the Florida Keys, and from the headwaters of coastally draining rivers to the edge of the continental shelf, with a focus in estuarine environments.

What We Do

  • Develop goals, objectives, action strategies and priorities to guide conservation efforts directed towards fish habitat conservation on the Atlantic coast.
  • Secure, leverage, and distribute resources for on-the-ground fish habitat conservation projects.
  • Coordinate the implementation of fish habitat conservation projects on a coast-wide, regional, and local scale.
  • Develop coast-wide scientific projects whose outcomes serve as decision support tools for our partners and other entities working to conserve aquatic habitat.

Our Mission

To accelerate the conservation, protection, restoration, and enhancement of habitat for native Atlantic coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fishes through partnerships between federal, tribal, state, local, and other entities.

Our Vision

Healthy, thriving habitats of sufficient quantity and quality to support all life stages of Atlantic coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fishes.

The ACFHP Region

Our Scope

ACFHP works in areas stretching from Maine to the Florida Keys and from the headwaters of coastally draining rivers to the edge of the continental shelf, with a focus on estuarine environments. We have broken our region down into four separate subregions for the purposes of habitat prioritization. They are the North Atlantic (the Canadian border to Cape Cod), Mid-Atlantic (Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras), South Atlantic (Cape Hatteras to Cape Canaveral), and South Florida (Cape Canaveral to the Dry Tortugas).
