The Artificial Production Facilities mapping tool provides information about the Fish and Wildlife Program's (program) 14 artificial production programs (AP Programs). These AP Programs include hatcheries, acclimation sites, and associated projects. In some cases, the AP Programs are dependent on non-program facilities for support (e.g. rearing facilities); however, such facilities are not included at this time. In addition, some AP Programs are currently in step review. These will be incorporated into the mapping tool at the appropriate time.
The mapping tool has been developed concurrently with the hatchery inventory (Phase I) and assessment (Phase II) parts of the Council's O&M Strategic Plan. The inventory and assessment reviews focus on the infrastructure of projects (i.e., facilities) developed and improved with capital investments provided through the program. The facilities being assessed are bricks and mortar capital investments.
