Restoration and Enhancement

The R&E Board

The Fish and Wildlife Commission appoints the seven-member Restoration and Enhancement Board to study potential projects and make recommendations for project funding. The R&E Board consists of citizens from around the state that represent the commercial fishing industry (3 positions), sports interests (3 positions) and one position that represents the public.

The R&E Board recommends a balance between restoration and enhancement type projects as well as ensures recommended projects benefit sport and commercial fisheries. As part of the review process, the Board holds public meetings at least every 120 days throughout the state seeking public comment on projects being proposed. Projects recommended by the R&E Board will be forwarded to the Commission for review and final approval.
