Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership or ORBFHP

The Ohio River and its basin are of national significance in both geographic scope and the fish and mussel resources contained within them. The Ohio River is the second largest river in the United States as measured by its annual discharge. The basin also contains at least 350 species of fish and more than 120 mussel species, including a number that are federally listed. Sportfishing is a major recreational activity with over 2.5 million angling hours recorded and 2.8 million fish caught within just the main-stem Ohio River during past surveys. It was with these resources in mind, that the Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership (ORBFHP) coalesced from a meeting of approximately 50 federal and state agencies, NGOs, and academic representatives interested in the aquatic habitat of the Ohio River Basin.

The ORBFHP’s focus is embodied in its mission statement: The Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership focuses protection, restoration, and enhancement efforts on priority habitat for fish and mussels in the watersheds of the Ohio River Basin for the benefit of the public.

Guiding Principles
Partnership resources are focused on areas containing both regionally important fish and mussel species and where there are both angling and species diversity interests.
Watersheds are treated holistically, realizing that habitats within a watershed are interconnected and must be dealt with accordingly. Reservoirs will not be addressed in and of themselves, but rather as a part of the stream system within which they occur.
Conservation of the best areas of each type of habitat is prudent, but in addition, appropriate techniques will be applied to areas where restoration of fish and mussel habitats is necessary and positive results can be reasonably expected, particularly when they result in larger contiguous areas of quality habitat.
Use of sound science and measurement of results are foundational.
Public support is crucial to generating partnership momentum, securing funding, and ultimately completing on the ground work that will be done by or through local partnerships representing a broad range of interests.

Ultimately the ORBFHP also developed a core list of specific habitat protection/restoration strategic actions with SMART objectives nested under six strategy areas that include the National Fish Habitat Action Plan Board’s four interim habitat strategies. The strategies selected by the ORBFHP link well with State Wildlife Action Plans and other planning efforts in the basin. These strategy areas are:


• Identify and protect intact and healthy waters

• Restore natural variability in river and stream flows.

• Reconnect fragmented river and stream habitat, to allow access to historic spawning, nursery, and rearing grounds.

• Reduce and maintain sedimentation, phosphorus and nitrogen runoff to river, and stream habitats to a level within 25% of the expected natural variance in these factors or above numeric State Water Quality Criteria

• Reduce other key pollutants or degrading environmental conditions (acid drainage, heavy metals, altered temperatures, or oxygen levels) in degraded priority stream habitat to a level within 25% of natural rates or above numeric Stream Water Quality criteria by 2020.

• Reduce the potential for invasive species impact through prevention and control measures at the basin-level and within priority systems.

    DESIGNERS - at this point we are working through private messaging to finalize both a primary and secondary design. Thanks to all who have submitted, we will be in touch with a few of you.

    #81 - can you move the sturgeon down to be the lower most fish (live more on the bottom) and the paddlefish to the top (more up in the open water)
    #82 - similar to this one if you can

    ALL DESIGNERS - At this point, input has been from the partnership coordinator and the chair of our outreach committee. We are trying to get several good designs to put out to the entire committee, who may view things differently than we do. We were looking for something simple and clean, but also something that all could relate to. I think we have several good designs, but one or two others that were more on the simple end but somehow could represent all would be nice to add to the mix. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

    #15/16 - Not sure if it is possible, but if you could make that design be an abstract version of a fish AND a mussel, it would be a simple but effective logo.

    #37 - Like the blue background. Other thing to work in, if possible, would be a fish (possibly smaller mussel if you need the room). Maybe a larger fish in the background? Maybe a sport fish (smallmouth bass?).

    #38 - Nice, but suggest putting both mussels on the bottom...you might want to partially bury one if you want to have a little variety between the two mussels.

    #46 - Good but might work better with the mussel on bottom of the circle and maybe a bit more waviness to the plants.

    #52 - Creative way to incorporate fish, mussels, and vegetation. But the vegetation looks more like coral to me. Can you make the ends of the plants pointed rather than rounded or possibly make the plants more feathered than smooth?

    #33 - Like the specific fish, but too many that are "big river" fish and our partnership is about the whole basin. Also would like to see a sport fish to appeal to anglers. Like the basin boundary and state lines, but those lines have changed (we don't include Tennessee and Cumberland rivers) and could well change in the future as this partnership is tied to a fairly new national effort and boundaries are subject to change. Like it, but hate to be tied to it.

    #36 - Interesting to have the circle and words around the design, but need to have a fish that we can relate to more (at least a bit more realistic, smaller waves). Not sure how it would work, but a mussel or vegetation under the water would be cool.

    #28 - Like the way the darker background makes this logo pop, but could you try something not black (blue?). Also, like the mussel in #29 with the extra lines.

    There are two of us who get together to rate logos, so for now I will provide written feedback periodically and confer with my partner for actual ratings Thur/Fri morning and Sat/Sun afternoon.

    #3 - Like the connection between fish and habitat. Like the brown tree trunk with blue Ohio River Basin. Would like to see any other designs along these lines that connect aquatic life (fish, mussels, etc.) with the land/trees/plants along the stream.

    #14 - Like where you are headed, but not sure that people will fully grasp what they are looking at. Can you work in a fish or mussel into the vegetation? Also, can you make Ohio River Basin blue and Fish Habitat Partnership green.

    We are a diverse partnership interested primarily in fish and mussels, but also in clean water, aquatic bugs/crayfish/etc, healthy aquatic vegetation, and just overall healthy stream habitat. We may not get that all in a logo, but we need some indication of diversity so that a wide cross-section of people can relate to our partnership.
