Fish Passage Task Force needs new members


SALEM - The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife seeks people with an interest in fish passage issues to become a member of the Fish Passage Task Force.


Applications must be recieved from qualified individuals by 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31.


The Fish Passage Task Force is a citizen advisory group created by the 2001 Oregon State Legislature that meets at least four times each year to work with and advise ODFW on fish passage issues. All expenses associated with these meetings are paid by ODFW. The Task Force is composed of nine members, with three representing fishing and conservation, three representing water users, and three representing the public-at-large.


ODFW's Director appoints Task Force members to four-year terms, with a two-term limit. Recently, a water user representative from the Task Force resigned as a result of a career move. ODFW is seeking applicants to fulfill the remainder of this Task Force member's term, which expires in February 2006, with the potential for re-appointment to another term lasting through February 2010.


Applications will be reviewed by ODFW staff and a recommendation will be made to the Director for the position. The new Task Force member will be appointed in November. Please contact Tom Stahl, Fish Passage Coordinator at (503) 947-6228 or [email protected] for a copy of the application or with any questions.
