Company Overview Humboldt Fish Action Council (HFAC) is a non-profit 501c3 organization established in 1969, a diverse group composed of: scientists, fishermen, landowners, agency representatives, community members, and students; based in Eureka California, working through out the Pacific North Coast.

These goals are achieved through directed implementation projects that address problems within a watershed such as: improving fish passage through culvert upgrades, culvert replacement with bridges, barrier modification or removal; improving habitat quality and access for salmonids; conducting community outreach through presentations and volunteer opportunities for area collages, universities, and youth removing non-native invasive species, revegetation with native plant species, and anchoring instream structures; improving riparian areas by removing invasive species and planting native species; decreasing sedimentation by stabilizing eroding banks, constructing cattle exclusion fences and agricultural off-site watering systems; conducting habitat inventories, biological assessments and project monitoring; provide technical advise, assistance, and labor; collaborate with agency personnel, landowners, and educators. The HFAC Native Plant Nursery grows plants for HFAC projects and the volunteer program; provides wholesale plants for other restoration practitioners and public agencies; performs contract grow operations; provides native botanical advise, planting design, and consultation; and provides educational opportunities for area collages, universities, and youth in propagation techniques, transplanting, clean and safe nursery practices, plant identification and optimum growing environments, and the benefits to all fish and wildlife by plant species.
