ODFW seeks candidates for Fish Screening Task Force

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

(SALEM, Ore.) - The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking a member to represent agricultural interests on the state’s Fish Screening Task Force.

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.

“Task force members represent a variety of groups and interests, making the group responsive to both fish and human needs,” said Alan Ritchey, ODFW fish screening coordinator.

“In return, members have an opportunity to visit several parts of the state to learn more about screening and passage issues and to help direct funding, especially on larger projects,” he added. The Task Force meets quarterly at various locations and meetings may include a 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 Alan Ritchey, ODFW fish screening coordinator, at (503) 947-6229. Ritchey also can be reached by e-mail at Applications should be submitted by Dec 1.
