Gap Analysis Project

Aquatic GAP

The Aquatic Gap Analysis Project (GAP) focuses on species found in coastal and inland waters. The goal of Aquatic GAP is to evaluate aquatic biological diversity and habitats using spatial analysis and species distribution models to identify gaps in species protection or threats to habitats in order to work toward more effective conservation planning and prioritization.

Aquatic Gap Analysis

AGAP is currently partnering on the development of national species distribution models for a couple hundred widely distribution fresh water fishes.  Those models are being built using the national spatial data framework to ensure consistency and compatibility with datasets our stakeholders use.  An initial conservation assessment based on 150 fresh water fish distribution models is in review...
