• Conserving fish habitats

  • Preserving the heartland

  • Improving local economies

The Midwest Fish Habitat Partnership is made up of six regional organizations focused on conservation, preservation and reclamation of fish habitats and aquatic life. Through improving natural habitats, we not only increase the quantity and quality of fish and other aquatic species, we also improve the health of the local economies. The partnerships succeed by combining science and technology with the collaborative efforts of local communities.
