File Structured Decision Making Workshop Presentation
This presentation addresses the problem statement: How should the USFWS, in partnership with NOAA, MDMR, PIN and NGO's use Atlantic salmon brood stock and the hatchery system to minimize risk of Atlantic salmon decline in terms of abundance, distribution, and genetic diversity within the three Salmon Habitat Recovery Units given current and future budget constraints? In addressing this problem it is particularly imperative that the decision process be transparent and recognizes the importance and values of our partners.

Organization USFWS Maine Field Office
The Ecological Services program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for the conservation and restoration of fish and wildlife and their habitats. Maine Field Office biologists investigate the effects of contaminants and recover damages for injuries to Department of the Interior trust resources caused by oil or chemical releases. We also help recover threatened and endangered species and review proposals for wetland and stream alterations from many types of development. We recommend measures to enhance fish and wildlife resources in conjunction with the licensing of energy generation facilities and other Federal projects such as shoreline protection, navigation and flood control, etc. Our work with private individuals, organizations, and other State and Federal agencies protects, restores and enhances fish and wildlife habitat on private, State, and Federal lands. Our office also provides the public with information about the value and benefits derived from the conservation and restoration of fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats.

Northeast Fisheries Science Center
In 2000 NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service established the Maine Field Station in Orono, ME to have more direct involvement in the conservation of the living marine resources in Maine, particularly Atlantic salmon. NOAA Fisheries Service shares jurisdiction of Atlantic salmon with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) at the federal level. Within Maine, NOAA Fisheries Service primarily focuses on fish in the estuarine and marine environment, while the Maine Atlantic Salmon Commission and USFWS focuses on the freshwater life stages. NOAA Fisheries Service also works closely with other federal agencies (particularly the U.S. Geological Survey), the University of Maine System and a wide range of state, academic, public and private partners.
