Apply For a Permit
Early consultation with ADF&G Habitat Biologists is an important step before proceeding with development and operational plans for a hydroelectric project. Habitat Biologists can assist the applicant in the design of study plans for collecting data on fish, wildlife, and water resources in the project area and provide recommendations for protecting fish and fish habitat.
