Adoption Statement - Fish Passage Goals

Published: January 09, 2005

The Chesapeake Bay Program signatory partners commit to adopting the Fish Passage Goal, as stated: "During the period 2005–2014, the Chesapeake Bay jurisdictions will complete 100 fish passage and/or dam removal projects, which will open 1,000 miles of high-quality tributary habitat to migratory and resident fishes. The Chesapeake Bay jurisdictions will require passage at all new dams or other blockages that interfere with the free passage of migratory fish within the Chesapeake Bay watershed to the fullest extent possible. Actual fish utilization and passage will be documented at all new fish passage projects and, wherever possible, these projects will be integrated within locally supported watershed management or restoration plans."
