Description: This report documents the general trends in fisheries and aquatic resources for the nation as required by the Renewable Resources Planning Act (RPA) of 1974. The report highlights major trends in water quality, specific fish populations, resource utilization, and imperiled aquatic fauna. Relationships between land use, water quality, and aquatic species conditions are explored. An analysis is provided of a multi-state information sharing initiative (MARIS) that the Forest Service has initiated, along with recommendations for the future. The data for the report came primarily from existing state and federal agency data. The report concludes with the implications of these findings for Forest Service strategic planning.
Keywords: fish resources, national assessment, trends, aquatic species, aquatic habitats, threatened and endangered species
