Alsea, Ore – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Oregon State University announced today that they are seeking candidates for the Oregon Hatchery Research Center Advisory Committee.

One member is needed to represent Tribal Fisheries, one member is needed to represent Resource Producers (wood products, ag) and two members are needed to represent Science-at-large. The length of each term is three years, and members may apply for reappointment.  Candidates must submit a letter of interest by April 30, 2008. The letter should specify why the applicant is interested and provide three references.  ODFW and OSU representatives will finalize their selections prior to May 15, 2008.  The next Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled for June 20, 2008.          

The 15-member committee advises the OHRC Senior Scientist on activities and functions related to the operation and maintenance of the OHRC.  Committee members represent the federal government, local governments, conservation groups, sport fishing groups, the commercial fishing industry, tribes, resource producers (agriculture, timber and gravel), watershed councils and education. Two members represent the public-at-large and four represent the scientific community.

The OHRC is a cooperative research project between ODFW and OSU. The center’s mission is to develop an understanding of the mechanisms that may create differences between hatchery and wild fish, and devise ways to reduce and manage the differences so that hatcheries can be used responsibly in the conservation and management of Oregon’s native fish.

For more information about the Advisory Committee or how to submit a letter of interest, please contact Stacy Gartzke at or 503-947-6230. For more information about the OHRC, visit ODFW’s website at
