Fish Passage Barrier Removal Fact Sheet Template - North Carolina Edition
An educational template on the importance of fish passage barrier removal for use by SARP, EBTJV, ACFHP and partners in North Carolina and which can be tailored and customized for use in other states.
In support of fish passage education and outreach, SARP, the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV), and the Atlantic Coastal Fish Habitat Partnership (ACFHP) have developed an informational template on fish passage barrier removal. The demonstration version includes a featured project and resources for North Carolina. The template was created for conservation groups that have strong local level community connections to citizens, property owners, and smaller stream systems where many potential barriers exist. It can be used to raise awareness of impacts these barriers have on fish and other aquatics, and to help enlist the assistance of landowners, recreationalists, and citizen scientists in identifying and providing information about barriers that may not yet be documented. User groups have the ability to personalize portions of the template according to their specific target audiences and the template can be used as an outreach tool to highlight key issues and projects. Complete with a section where specific calls to action can be identified to help empower stakeholders to take action and report potential barriers, which will help the databases of the Southeast Aquatic Connectivity Assessment Program (SEACAP) and other programs grow and remain up to date and relevant.
