ODFW seeks candidates for Fish Screening Task Force

Nov. 3, 2014

SALEM – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking two candidates to represent agriculture and fishing/fish conservation interests on the state’s Fish Screening Task Force.  Applicants have until Nov. 30 to apply.

The ODFW Fish Screening Program helps water users install and maintain fish screens to prevent fish from entering water diversions. The Task Force advises ODFW on program development, implementation, monitoring, technology, funding and reporting.

“Having task force members who represent a variety of groups and interests, creates a program that’s responsive to both fish and human needs,” said Pete Baki, ODFW fish screening coordinator.

Members have an opportunity to help direct funding, especially on larger projects, and to visit several parts of the state to learn more about screening and passage issues, Baki said. The Task Force meets three times a year at various locations and meetings may include a local field trip to project sites in the area.

The seven members of the Task Force are appointed by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. Three members represent agricultural interests, three members represent fishing or fish conservation interests, and one member represents the public- at-large. Members serve two-year terms and may be re-appointed.

Individuals interested in serving on the task force can contact Pete Baki, ODFW Fish Screening Coordinator, at (503) 947-6217 or by e-mail at
