Fish & Wildlife

It is important to protect our fish and make sure they are provided with clean water, an adequate food supply, a place to spawn and clear migration routes. By doing this we safeguard sport and commercial fishing industries that are a big part of the econmy, provide native peoples a traditional source of food and income, and help protect our well being by making sure that lakes, rivers, bays and seas around which we live, work and play are environmentally healthy and pleasant places to be.

Unfortunately, fish habitat can be easily damaged due to human activities that occur in or near water or due to water usage. Human activities often result in big and small changes to fish and their habitat, in ways that are both glaringly obvious and extremely subtle. The consequences may profoundly affect not only our local communities, but the entire ecosystem and the environment.
