Oregon Hatchery Research Center Board is seeking new members

Friday, February 5, 2021

ALSEA, Ore. – ODFW seeking three new members to represent wild fish advocacy, Oregon Indian tribes and the Columbia River gillnet salmon fishery on the Oregon Hatchery Research Center Board. The successful candidates will each serve a four-year term.

Candidates must submit an application and provide three references by April 30, 2021. The ODFW Director will appoint the new members. The application is available on the ODFW web site at

The Board is charged with advising the OHRC Director on operational, budget and research priorities at the Center. As directed by Oregon House Bill 3441, the OHRC Board is required to include 12 members representing a variety of groups including wild fish advocacy, Oregon Indian tribes and Columbia River gillnet fishing. Additional details about the Board’s responsibilities can be found in HB 3441, available on the ODFW web site at

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.

For more information about the OHRC Board or how to apply, please contact Kerrie Tarkinton at or (541) 757-5101. For more information about the OHRC, visit the OHRC’s Web site at
