THE DESERT FISH HABITAT PARTNERSHIP: BUILDING FRESHWATER CONSERVATION FOR AT-RISK FISHES ON A REGIONAL SCALE

Abstract:

Arid land aquatic habitats in the western and southwestern United States support a significant level of aquatic diversity with 175 endemic species and subspecies of non-salmonid fishes including 52% of freshwater fishes listed under the ESA. Widespread stressors including land use change, urbanization, water development, climate change and invasive species are severely impacting these species and aquatic habitats but the region has lacked comprehensive conservation planning and implementation to arrest the decline of these species assemblages and unique, often isolated habitats. The Desert Fish Habitat Partnership, patterned after other joint ventures and sport fish habitat partnerships, incorporates 20 State, Federal and NGO partners in the development of a range-wide conservation needs assessment and conservation strategy for desert fish species and habitats. Building on existing Wildlife Action Plans from 10 partner states, the DFHP uses those assessments to identify and prioritize regional threats and stressors, identify opportunities for cross-boundary conservation and partnership with other conservation efforts such as the Western Native Trout Initiative, and develop capacity building through stakeholder outreach to increase the flexibility of existing funding sources and enhance resources for conservation of priority “underserved and overlooked” desert fish species and habitats, emphasizing watershed level conservation and multi-species conservation implementation.
