ODFW seeks new member for Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program Board

August 2, 2012

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking a qualified candidate to represent the public-at-large on the Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program Board. The application deadline is Aug. 24, 2012.

The Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees. The R and E Board reviews grant proposals from various organizations and agencies and recommends funding for fish restoration and enhancement projects throughout the state.

Board members are appointed to four-year terms by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. The group meets three or four times each year in various communities throughout the state to review project funding applications, hear public testimony, act as liaisons between the program and the public and to conduct other program business. Board members are volunteers; however, Board-related travel expenses are reimbursed.

The seven-member citizen Board is made up of three sport fishing representatives, three representatives from the salmon troll, gillnet and seafood processing industries and one public-at-large representative.

To obtain an application or learn more about the R and E Program, visit the R and E website at applications must post marked or e-mailed by Friday, Aug. 24 to be considered. Please contact the Program Coordinator at 503-947-6259 if you have further questions about the position.
