Fish includes the National Fisheries Program and the National Fish & Aquatic Ecology Unit.
The National Fisheries Program assists field biologists in attaining the Chief's aquatic priorities and manage aquatic resources from a healthy ecosystem perspective.
Program Initiatives include "Bring Back the Natives" and "Rise to the Future". "Initiatives" are special topics to which we give added emphasis through projects, events, literature and funding. The intent of our varied Initiatives is to help us and our partners move forward to accomplish specific management goals for certain key issues.
The focus of the National Stream and Aquatic Ecology Center is on developing tools and science applications for the more effective management and conservation of watersheds, streams, riparian ecosystems, fisheries and aquatic ecosystems on National Forests and Grasslands.
