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, which is important in creating a program that’s responsive to fish and social needs,” said ODFW Fish Screens and Passage Program Manager Alan Ritchey.

“This is a great opportunity to get directly involved helping make recommendations regarding Fish Screening Program implementation and to learn more about fish screening and passage issues,” he added.

The Task Force meets three times a year 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 reappointed.

For questions or additional information regarding the Task Force, please call (503) 947-6256.
