Fisheries and Aquatics Program


The mission of the Superior National Forest Fisheries and Aquatics Program is to enhance and restore watershed, riparian, and aquatic resources to support dependent species and habitats as well as provide for public enjoyment of these resources on National Forest System lands. This mission will be guided by National Strategic goals, Forest Plan goals and objectives, as well as Forest and District Priorities.
