Salem, Ore. -- The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking 10 new members to represent commercial fishing interests on the commercial Fishery Permit Review Board. Persons interested should contact ODFW by July 31, 2013.
The permit review board evaluates limited entry permit denials made by ODFW and considers requests for permit transfers for the following commercial fisheries: sea urchin, roe herring, Columbia River gillnet salmon, ocean troll salmon, ocean shrimp/scallop, ocean crab, sardine, bay clam dive, brine shrimp, blue and black rockfish and nearshore fisheries.
The board is comprised of three commercial fishers representing each fishery plus two at-large members of the public. Board members serve three-year terms.
Members of the board receive no compensation for their service but will be reimbursed for travel and other expenses incurred in the performance of official duties. Applicants must be willing to travel to coast locations and to Salem, although telephone conference calls are used in many cases to reduce travel.
Potential candidates should submit a qualification and information sheet that describes their career and/or public service history. Contact DeAnna Erickson, 503-947-6112 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the qualification and information sheet.
