WDFW Lands

Correcting fish passage barriers on WDFW Wildlife Areas and Hatcheries is a priority for WDFW. Fish passage barrier correction projects and other habitat enhancement work on wildlife areas and hatcheries tend to necessitate interdisciplinary, cross-program expertise. 

This past year was one of the largest construction years for on WDFW lands for fish passage work, correcting 28 fish passage barriers.  Funding for this work was through the WDFW Capital budget as well as the Jobs Now Act, a one time jobs creation bill funded through the legislature.
