Russel appointed to hatchery research advisory committee
December 2, 2009


ALSEA, Ore – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Oregon State University announced today the appointment of David Russel of Roseburg to the Oregon Hatchery Research Center Advisory Committee.   

Russel is the Umpqua district forester for Roseburg Forest Products where he manages the forest practices on 220,000 acres. He also has been a board member and active participant with Partnership for the Umpqua River, a local watershed group.

“Forests and fisheries are obviously closely linked, and it’s important for us in the forestry community to participate in fisheries issues,” Russel said.

Russel will serve an 18-month term on the OHRC Advisory Committee representing resource producers.

The 15-member Advisory Committee advises the OHRC Senior Scientist on activities and functions related to the operation and maintenance of the OHRC.  Committee members represent the federal government, local governments, conservation groups, sport fishing groups, the commercial fishing industry, tribes, resource producers, watershed councils and education. Two members represent the public-at-large and four represent the scientific community.

The OHRC is a cooperative research project between ODFW and OSU. The center’s mission is to develop an understanding of the mechanisms that may create differences between hatchery and wild fish, and devise ways to reduce and manage the differences so that hatcheries can be used responsibly in the conservation and management of Oregon’s native fish.
