SALEM – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking three members to serve on the state’s Fish Passage Task Force. One member will represent water users, one fishing and conservation groups and one the general public on this ODFW advisory body.

The Fish Passage Program administers the rules and statutes related to the passage of native migratory fish in Oregon’s rivers and streams.

 “The task force is instrumental in the implementation of Oregon’s Fish Passage Statutes. Their role in bringing myriad perspectives into the fish passage arena creates a program that is responsive to both fish passage and societal needs,” said Greg Apke, ODFW Fish Passage Program Coordinator.

The Task Force advises the ODFW Director and the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on matters related to passage issues such as program development and implementation, fish passage waivers and exemptions, funding, monitoring, reporting to joint legislative committee, and project prioritization.

The nine members of the Fish Passage Task Force are appointed by the ODFW Director. Task Force members represent water users, fisheries and conservation interests, and the general public. Landowners and operators must provide for passage of adult and juvenile native migratory fish whenever there is new construction, major replacement, a permit change or abandonment. Providing adequate passage to historic habitat is one of the best ways to improve fish populations.

Individuals interested in serving on the ODFW Fish Passage Task Force can request additional information or an application from Greg Apke, ODFW Fish Passage Program Coordinator, at (503) 947-6228. Greg also can be reached by e-mail at .  Applications will be accepted through Dec. 31, 2008.
