National Fish Passage Program

The National Fish Passage Program works with partners to improve or remove barriers to fish movement and reconnect aquatic habitats.

The National Fish Passage Program (NFPP) is a voluntary program which provides financial and technical assistance to reconnect aquatic habitats through the removal of barriers. The NFPP conducts projects in partnership with state and federal agencies, non-government organizations, universities, and tribes to benefit species and communities.

The NFPP is the only U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) program that focuses solely on issues surrounding aquatic barriers and restoration of waterway connectivity. Staff works on a local level to achieve results for the species and for communities and partners.
