Habitat restoration projects selected through this funding opportunity will contribute to the recovery of the Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment (DPS) of Atlantic salmon, a federally-listed endangered species and a NOAA Species in the Spotlight.
Atlantic salmon are an iconic species of the Northeast. They once returned by the hundreds of thousands to most major rivers along the northeastern United States. Now, they only return in small numbers to rivers in central and eastern Maine.
Degraded habitat is one of the largest obstacles facing the recovery of threatened and endangered species like Atlantic salmon. Through funding and technical assistance, the NOAA Restoration Center supports projects that restore the habitats that threatened and endangered species need to survive
