State Funding / Technical Resources
The Whitewater to Bluewater project is a collaboration between the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership, the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership, and the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture that aims to conserve fish habitat in the eastern United States from the smallest headwater streams to offshore habitat in the Atlantic Ocean.
Since 2012, with funding from a recently-awarded Multi-state Conservation Grant, three fish habitat partnerships (FHPs)--Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership (SARP), the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) and the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV)-- have been working together on three objectives: 1) To advance each partnership's habitat assessments by collecting, developing, and sharing fish habitat information and data; 2) To coordinate outreach activities to strengthen and expand the base of conservation delivery partners; and 3) To implement each of the individual FHP's strategic plans.
According to Scott Robinson, SARP Coordinator, "The award of this grant and the opportunity to collaborate more closely with other FHPs in the region is exciting. These three partnerships represent a large portion of the southern and eastern United States. This grant will provide funds we need to maximize the strength and efficiencies of the National Fish Habitat effort by sharing assessment and restoration techniques and data and collectively improving our communications efforts."
