EBTJV's Vision:

Healthy Coldwater Systems with Fishable Brook Trout Populations Throughout Their Historic Eastern Geographic Range

Our Mission:

The Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV) is a geographically focused, locally driven and scientifically based effort to protect, restore and enhance aquatic habitat throughout the brook trout's Eastern US native range. Learn more

Our mission is to secure resilient populations of wild Brook Trout by protecting, enhancing, and restoring aquatic habitat and increasing human connections to, and stewardship of, our natural environment.

We fill a need for collaborative, coordinated management of brook trout habitat across jurisdictional lines, especially through:


Science and Data

Links to tools that can assist natural resource managers when making decisions about brook trout conservation actions.


Collaboration and Information Sharing

Brook trout don’t understand administrative boundaries. Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture facilitates communication across local and state lines so that agencies, scientists, and citizen groups can work collectively and more effectively to keep brook trout on the map. Stay tuned for upcoming workshops and discussions.


Funding Results-Oriented Habitat Projects

Each year, the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture requests project proposals that are focused on conserving and restoring habitat that will support healthy and productive populations of wild Brook Trout. Our program timeline changed in 2021. Please come back in mid-October for a notice of RFP, or sign up to our list serve to get email notifications.
