Description    


This project prepared and submitted a reservation of water for 50 km of the mainstem Aniak River.

Project Benefit    


The rivers of SW AK support some of North America’s most viable and productive salmon stocks. Salmon depend on sufficient quantities of water to meet their spawning, rearing, incubation, overwintering, and migration habitat requirements. This project will provide long-term habitat protection by legally reserving instream flows needed to conserve salmon habitat.
