A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
The Office of Subsistence Management conducted a series of workshops to develop strategic plans for several of the Fisheries Resource Monitoring Program regions. Federal and State fishery managers, scientists, Alaska Native and rural organization representatives, and Regional Advisory Council members participated in these workshops. During each workshop, Federal subsistence fisheries management research needs were identified and prioritized. The strategic plans and information needs identified by the Regional Advisory Councils guide the request for proposals and ensure that data collected address the highest priority Federal subsistence fisheries management issues.
