Management

ADF&G manages fish and wildlife habitat in refuges, critical habitat areas, and sanctuaries and influences management of fish habitat through fish habitat permitting. We inventory fish habitat important for spawning, rearing, and migration of anadromous fish. The department also provides recommendations for conserving fish and wildlife habitat to the Department of Natural Resources and federal land managers during the development of area management plans and land use leases and permits.
