Priority Scores for Project Selection

The Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture has developed priority scores for project selection to assist in identifying areas that are best for restoration, best for enhancement, and best for protection for the states in the EBTJV region.

EBTJV divided watersheds throughout the region by intact, reduced, and extirpated predicted status. For each of these categories, the watersheds have been ranked in order best for conservation action.

Draft state watershed maps are available for download below. The categories for each state include: Best for Restoration, Best for Enhancement, and Best for Protection.

The EBTJV region with all watersheds priority-ranked for project selection is available to view. The raw data from this assessment is downloadable.

The EBTJV study divided watersheds throughout the region by intact, reduced, and extirpated predicted status. For each of these categories, the watersheds have been ranked in order best for conservation action.

Intact watersheds (viable reproducing brook trout populations) - best for protection

Reduced watersheds (brook trout populations that are experiencing pressure) - best for enhancement

Extirpated watersheds (brook trout populations no longer present) - best for restoration

Draft state watershed maps are available for download below. The categories for each state include: Best for Restoration, Best for Enhancement, and Best for Protection.
