A summary of the information necessary for completing a risk assessment and information on how fish and wildlife incident data are considered for regulatory decisions are also provided.

1.2 Several agencies collect information and maintain databases regarding fish and wildlife incidents. A list of these databases and the types of information they contain are included. Agencies with regulatory authority relating to fish and wildlife incidents are listed and laws pertaining to fish and wildlife incidents are summarized.
