NEWPORT, Ore.—A public information meeting in Waldport about the Oregon Hatchery Research Center planned for Jan. 30 has been cancelled because of weather.

“We have some real concerns over the weather,” said Ryan Couture, manager of the Oregon Hatchery Research Center. “We would like to have a good turn out, but we don’t want people traveling on icy roads to and from the meeting.”

Couture said the meeting would be rescheduled in March. At that time Dr. David Noakes, the center’s senior scientist and Oregon State University professor, will discuss how the research projects relate to fish stocks and fishing. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff will also be on hand to answer questions.

The Oregon Hatchery Research Center is an internationally recognized destination for fish research, which opened in October 2005. The $7.8 million facility was built with funds appropriated by the Oregon Legislature, from Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board lottery funds and from the Fish Restoration and Enhancement license funds.  The Center is jointly operated by ODFW and Oregon State University.

The Center is open to the public daily and tours for larger groups are available upon request.  For more information contact the Oregon Hatchery Research Center at 541-487-5510, via email at oregonhatchery.researchcenter@state.or.us or on the web at http://www.dfw.state.or.us/OHRC/
