SALEM, Ore – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking a member to represent fishing or fish conservation interests on the state’s Fish Screening Task Force.

The ODFW Fish Screening Program helps water users install and maintain fish screens to prevent fish from entering water diversions. The Task Force advises ODFW on program development, implementation, monitoring, technology, funding and reporting.

“The task force plays an important role in bringing different perspectives to the table and helping to create a program that’s responsive to both fish and human needs,” said Alan Ritchey, ODFW fish screening coordinator.

“It’s also an opportunity for task force members to help direct funding, especially on larger projects, and to learn more about screening and passage issues throughout the state,” he added. The Task Force meets quarterly at various locations and meetings may include a field trip to project sites in the area.

The seven members of the Task Force are appointed by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. Three members represent agricultural interests, three members represent fishing or fish conservation interests, and one member represents the public at large. Members serve two-year terms and may be re-appointed.

Individuals interested in serving on the task force can contact Alan Ritchey, ODFW fish screening coordinator, at (503) 947-6229. Ritchey also can be reached by e-mail at  Applications should be submitted by April 3.
