California Fish Passage Advisory Committee

 

FishPAC logoThe Fish Passage Advisory Committee (FishPAC) is a joint effort between the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and other interested advocates of fish passage efforts.

 

The purpose of the FishPACs is to cooperatively share science and data related to known fish barriers, develop methods to consider and prioritize locations for assessments and for biological priorities for remediating. The FishPACs track the status of active and funded fish passage barriers until they are remediated. In addition, FishPACs track post-construction fish passage effectiveness.

 

The mission of the FishPACs is to identify and prioritize barriers to fish passage, and to support the implementation of good solutions for fish passage projects within the FishPAC geographic area. FishPACs will recommend technical solutions, explore options for accelerated delivery of projects, and identify potential funding mechanisms for both new barrier removal projects and the long-term maintenance of existing fish passage facilities.
