Hatchery research center Advisory Committee to meet June 8 in Alsea
 
May 27, 2011

 

ALSEA, Ore. — The Oregon Hatchery Research Center (OHRC) Advisory Committee will meet Wednesday, June 8 at the Oregon Hatchery Research Center, 2418 E. Fall Creek Rd. Alsea, Ore.

The meeting will be from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. and the agenda includes reports on facilities, budgets and other business relating to the operations of the OHRC. The Committee also will be briefed on studies of the comparative diets of wild and hatchery salmon, and differing responses to lead in coastal streams.

The OHRC Advisory Committee advises the Senior Scientist on activities and functions related to the operation and maintenance of the OHRC. The Committee consists of 15 members who represent various government, tribal, conservation, fishing, natural resource, public and scientific interests.

The OHRC is a cooperative research project between the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Oregon State University. The OHRC’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 use of Oregon’s native fish.

The meeting is open to the public and an opportunity for public comment is scheduled. Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials at all ODFW public meetings. Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the ODFW Director’s Office at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6044 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting. For more information about the OHRC visit ODFW’s web site www.dfw.state.or.us/OHRC/ or contact Ryan Couture, Facility Manager at 541-487-5510.
