ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the advisory committee drafting a conservation plan for naturally produced fall chinook salmon in southern Oregon are holding a June 15 meeting in Brookings. The meeting will take place from 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Chetco Public Library, 405 Alder Street, and the public has 10 minutes to comment at the end of the meeting.
At the meeting, the advisory committee will continue working on desired status and conservation status statements for fall chinook populations in southern Oregon. A first draft of these status statements may be completed by the end of the meeting.
The conservation plan covers populations of native fall chinook salmon in Oregon streams between Euchre Creek and the California border and the Rogue River Basin. Guided by ODFW’s Native Fish Conservation Policy, the plan will identify desired and conservation status and describe management strategies to reach these goals.
