Colorado Fisheries and Aquatics

BLM Colorado’s fisheries program maintains, restores and conserves more than 60 fish species on 4,300 miles of riparian habitat and 10,000 acres of riparian-wetland habitat. Much of this work is accomplished in collaboration with others and funded through various partnerships with federal, state and private organizations. The fisheries and riparian programs are integral components of the BLM's cross-cutting landscape restoration initiatives, supporting projects that enhance aquatic ecosystems and the associated habitat for a variety of fish species.
