In 2005, in recognition of the need to address regional and range-wide threats to brook trout, a group of public and private entities formed the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV) to halt the decline of brook trout and restore fishable populations of this iconic species. The EBTJV directs locally-driven efforts that build partnerships to improve fish habitat, working to ensure healthy, fishable brook trout populations throughout their historic eastern United States range.

The Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership is a coast-wide collaborative effort to accelerate the conservation of habitat for native Atlantic coastal, estuarine-dependent, and diadromous fishes. We are a Partnership consisting of resource managers, scientists and professionals representing 30 different state, federal, tribal, non-governmental and other entities. We work in areas stretching from Maine to the Florida Keys, and from the headwaters of coastaly draining rivers to the edge of the continental shelf, with a focus in estuarine environments.
