NFCAs are watersheds where management emphasizes proactive conservation and restoration for long-term persistence of native fish assemblages while allowing for compatible uses. This report describes the methods and results of the assessment and discusses the practical benefits of NFCAs in the basin.
This report provides additional details on the methods used to identify Native Fish Conservation Areas in the Upper Snake River Basin.
