Since its inception in 2006, the Western Native Trout Initiative (WNTI) has directed almost $5.5 million in federal fish habitat funds leveraged to $38 million public and private matching dollars for 187 priority native trout conservation projects. By leveraging funding provided to WNTI by the National Fish Habitat Partnership, WNTI and its many partners have successfully improved the status of western native trout populations in 12 western states including Alaska. With the collaboration and coordination of WNTI Partners, together we have removed 116 barriers to fish passage, reconnected or improved 1,398 miles of native trout habitat, and placed 38 protective fish barriers to conserve important native trout conservation populations. In order to ensure our collaborative investments are directed toward the highest priority projects, WNTI has funded over 744 watershed, fish population, and habitat surveys.
