Report on the Alaska Region Section 10/404 Permit Coordination 1981 through 1985 (Supplement), 1990
NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-F/AKR-6b; Supplement #1 1986-1987 Data; Supplement #2 1988 Data
The Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 use 661-667) requires that action on licenses, permits, and construction projects regulated or undertaken by other Federal agencies in waters of the United States must include consultation with resource agencies (NMFS) and equal consideration of fish and wildlife resources. The NMFS Alaska Region dedicates a major effort to coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) on Section 10 and 404 permit applications. It is, therefore, important that NMFS periodically assess its involvement and institute changes to improve our effectiveness. This report, the first such evaluation conducted by the Alaska Region, also provides an C accounting of our Habitat Conservation Division program, resource values and concerns, and development pressures in Alaska.
