The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has developed a conservation plan for four species of native lampreys: Pacific Lamprey (Entosphenus tridentatus), Western River Lamprey (Lampetra ayresii), Western Brook Lamprey (Lampetra richardsoni), and Pacific Brook Lamprey (Lampetra pacifica), consistent with guidance provided in Oregon’s Native Fish Conservation Policy. The Coastal, Columbia, and Snake Conservation Plan for Lampreys in Oregon (CPL) is intended to provide information and management guidance for the aforementioned four species of lampreys in Oregon. This plan was under development for a number of years with the involvement of numerous stakeholders and partners. The CPL also was reviewed by the public and science reviewers. The CPL was presented (see Exhibit H) to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission and approved by them on December 6, 2019. The Executive Summary of the CPL (see pages 3-5 in the “Final CPL”, below) provides a concise overview of the main points of the plan.
