Montana officials voted Thursday to allow 22 native fish restoration projects around the state to move forward this field season. The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission’s decision to authorize the projects came after state officials changed procedures for authorizing restoration work that requires removal of non-native fish.

All projects were at varying stages of the Montana Environmental Policy Act and National Environmental Policy Act vetting process.
