Forage Fish Management Plan

The draft Oregon Forage Fish Management Plan (“Plan”) is designed to protect forage fish species in Oregon’s waters that are important prey for sustaining our fisheries and the ecosystem on which fisheries rely. The Plan, once adopted, will prevent new unmanaged forage fish fisheries from developing while allowing existing fishery activity to continue. 

ODFW is soliciting public comment on the Plan from June 15 to July 13, 2016.  Comments will be considered by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission when they consider adoption of the Plan at the September 2, 2016, meeting (in Welches).

To comment on the draft Plan, please respond by phone, email or written correspondence to:
