From FY 2006 through FY 2018, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) allocated more than $3.3 million to the EBTJV in support of eighty-eight Brook Trout conservation projects, while project partners contributed $17.5 million, which equates to a 5:1 ratio of partner to Service funds . Two hundred forty different organizations have been involved in these Brook Trout conservation projects at the local level, with many partnering multiple times. Twenty-eight percent of these project partners were non-governmental organizations, 17% were state agencies, 13% were federal agencies, 10% were watershed councils or conservation districts, 9% were businesses, 8% were foundations or grant programs, 7% were educational institutions and municipalities, respectively. Forty-nine of these Brook Trout conservation projects focused on in-stream habitat work that enhanced 240 stream miles, while one project enhanced 157 acres of lentic habitat. Twelve projects entailed enhancing or restoring 357 acres of riparian habitat and forty-three projects removed 103 barriers to fish passage, re-opening access to 321 miles of stream. The EBTJV sees value in estimating the socioeconomic benefits derived from Brook Trout conservation projects and has developed a methodology for making these estimates using data contained in the US Fish and Wildlife Service report titled “An Assessment of Economic Contributions from Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Conservation (2010).” Using the multipliers identified in this methodology, the estimated socioeconomic benefits resulting from eighty-eight Brook Trout conservation projects is $309 million.
