Martin Nugent (503) 947-6309

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Wildlife Integrity Review Panel will meet Wednesday, May 21 at 10:30 a.m. to discuss and recommend classification of one fish and two invertebrate species.

Oregon’s Wildlife Integrity Rules classify non-native wildlife as prohibited, controlled or non-controlled based on their potential to harm native wildlife. Currently, more than16,000 species are classified. The review panel will recommend additions or changes to the list during the meeting. The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission will make a final determination at a later date on the affected species. There will be a public review process.

The Wildlife Integrity Review Panel will meet in open session at 10:30 a.m. May 21 at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Headquarters, 3406 Cherry Ave. N.E., Salem. Any recommendations will be made at 3 p.m. or after. No public testimony will be taken during the meeting. Members of the public may discuss wildlife integrity issues with the five-member panel before and after the meeting and during breaks.
