Restoration and Enhancement

Your Fishing License Fees at Work for You

The Fish and Wildlife Commission appoints the seven-member Restoration and Enhancement Board to study potential projects and make recommendations for project funding. The R&E Board consists of citizens from around the state that represent commercial fishing (3 positions), sports interests (3 positions) and the public (one position).

The board meets quarterly to review and recommend proposals to the ODFW Commission for funding approval.

The R&E Board recommends a balance between restoration and enhancement type projects as well as ensures recommended projects benefit sport and commercial fisheries. As part of the review process, the Board holds public meetings at least every 120 days throughout the state seeking public comment on projects being proposed. The Restoration and Enhancement Program (R&E) is a grant program that provides $4-6,000,000 per biennium to fishery projects throughout Oregon.

Projects recommended by the R&E Board will be forwarded to the Commission for review and final approval.
