The Mat-Su Salmon Partnership has a Strategic Action Plan that identifies long-term goals, strategies and voluntary actions that the Partnership, or anyone else can undertake to conserve salmon habitat. There are twelve areas of conservation strategies addressed, plus three over-arching science strategies to increase our knowledge about the location and characteristics of salmon habitat in the Mat-Su: fish distribution and life cycle use, water quantity, and water quality. The plan was first developed in 2008 following an 18 month long process involving many Partners and stakeholders, and was updated in 2013 to address changes in the Mat-Su Basin that could significantly alter the situation for salmon habitat.
It is our belief that a cooperative approach to protection and restoration of salmon habitat can ensure that both healthy salmon and healthy human populations co-exist in the Mat-Su Basin. The Strategic Action Plan is the Partnership’s vision for doing that.
