Therefore, it is in the state s best interests to promote volunteer private rehabilitation and improvement of fisheries, fish habitat, and resources.

(b) The Legislature declares it is the policy of this state to encourage cooperation by local, regional, state, and federal governmental agencies with jurisdiction over inland waters with private groups and associations in order to do fish habitat and restoration work. This policy shall be pursued through the implementation of a program known as the Adopt a Lake Program.
