Project Description

CalTrout looks to use its organizational capacity, regional expertise, and clout to influence federal, state, and regional managers to pursue our common mission and vision to protect our valued public trust resources, our prized fish communities, and water resources that are at the foundation of California’s vast ecological and economic wealth. The expenditure of millions each year in public funds is a huge responsibility, and must be done strategically to achieve effective outcomes. By participating in numerous regional and state-wide committees we promote our mission of water and fish resource stewardship. These include: leading the California Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead toward reform of state and federal grant programs for recovery of Endangered Species Act listed species; working with National Marine Fisheries Service and California Department of Fish and Wildlife to implement their Endangered Species Recovery Plans; and participating in the Fisheries Restoration Grant Program Peer Review Committee.
