Its purpose is to advise the Secretary of the Interior and the Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service about aquatic conservation endeavors that benefit recreational fishery resources and recreational boating and that encourage partnerships among industry, the public, and government. All of the activities of the Council focus on the conservation and responsible use of the Nation's aquatic resources. Examples of current work highlight this focus, including helping provide public boating access through recommending project funding through the Boating Infrastructure Grant Program; continuing to monitor and offer advice to the Service's Fisheries Program that aides in efforts to conserve fishery resources and offer fishing and boating opportunities for the American public; recommending ways to improve the Service-managed Boating Access, Clean Vessel Act and Boating Infrastructure Grant Programs; and providing recommendations to the Department and the Service on ways to increase participation in outdoor recreation. Efforts such as these aid in maintaining Service accountability to its stakeholders and partners and assists the Department and the Service in their conservation and public use missions. 592757c9-88ad-45c8-b079-11c83c5efa46 Recommandations Not Available 266fff81-a167-48c2-92d4-ab6dfc933427 Make, Accept, Implement d1449b0c-787d-4c58-972d-eb7af2619c01 2c8d6215-7349-41b4-9a15-f97d1e285078 Recommendations Made Number Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council Department of the Interior Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The last recommendations were made in FY 2010.
