Oregon Hatchery Research Center Board seeks two new members

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

ALSEA, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking two new members to represent the agricultural industry and the Columbia River gillnet salmon fishery on the Oregon Hatchery Research Center Board. The successful candidates will each serve a three-year term.

Candidates must submit an application and provide three references by June 30, 2017. The ODFW Director will appoint the new members in the summer of 2017. The application is available on the ODFW web site.

The Board is charged with advising the OHRC Director on operational, budget and research priorities at the research center. As directed by Oregon House Bill 3441, the OHRC Board is required to include 12 members representing a variety of groups including agriculture and Columbia River commercial fishing.  Additional details about the Board’s responsibilities can be found in HB 3441, available on the ODFW web site.

The OHRC is a cooperative research project between ODFW and OSU. The center’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 management of Oregon’s native fish.

For more information about the OHRC Board or how to apply, please contact Kerrie Tarkinton at kerrie.j.tarkinton@state.or.us or (503) 947-6226. For more information about the OHRC, visit the OHRC’s Web site at www.dfw.state.or.us/fish/OHRC/index.asp.
