Hatchery research center board seeks new member to represent independent science

Nov. 24, 2014

Alsea, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking a new Board member to represent the independent science community on the Oregon Hatchery Research Center Board. As directed by HB 3441, the independent science member shall have scientific background related to fish management and the propagation of hatchery fish. The successful candidate will serve a four year term.

The Board is charged with advising the OHRC Director on operational, budget and research priorities at the research center. Additional details about the Board’s responsibilities can be found in HB 3441, available on the ODFW web site.

Candidates must submit an application and provide three references by Dec. 24, 2014. The ODFW Director will appoint the new member by Jan. 10, 2015. The application is available on the ODFW web site.

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.
