The Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership (PMEP) is seeking project proposals that benefit nursery habitats for PMEP focal species within estuarine and nearshore waters along the West Coast.
PMEP is one of 20 regional fish habitat partnerships in the United States. Its mission is to provide science, data, and funding to conserve and restore West Coast nearshore marine and estuarine fish habitat. PMEP is advancing estuarine habitat classification and mapping and is gathering and assessing information about estuarine and nearshore marine fish habitat use. It also prioritizes and funds fish habitat restoration projects through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP).
