OHRC Advisory Committee to meet Sept. 19 in Newport
September 14, 2011


ALSEA, Ore. — The Oregon Hatchery Research Center Advisory Committee will meet Sept. 19 from 9:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Oregon Coast Community College, 400 SE College Way, Newport.

The agenda includes discussion on completed, active and proposed research projects, budgets and other business related to the operations of the OHRC. The committee will hear about research on natural mate selection, fish ecology and the recovery of the Salmon River’s wild coho runs.

The meeting is open to the public and an opportunity for public comment is scheduled for 11:45 a.m.

The OHRC Advisory Committee advises the OHRC Senior Scientist on activities and functions related to the operation and maintenance of the OHRC. The Committee consists of 15 members who represent the following interests: federal government, local government, conservation, sport fishing, commercial fishing, tribal, resource producers (agriculture, timber and gravel), watershed councils, education, the public-at-large and science-at-large.

The OHRC is a cooperative research project between ODFW and Oregon State University. The OHRC’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 use of Oregon’s native fish.
