Description

The Aquatic Conservation Strategy (ACS) is a regional strategy applied to aquatic and riparian ecosystems across the area covered by the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP, or Plan), encompassing broad landscapes of public lands administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) (USDA and USDI 1994a). The ACS was developed during the analysis (FEMAT 1993) that led to the NWFP, but its foundation was a refinement of earlier strategies: the Scientific Panel on Late-Successional Forest Ecosystems (“The Gang of Four”) (Johnson et al. 1991), PacFish (USDA and USDI 1994b), and the Scientific Analysis Team (Thomas et al. 1993).
