by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The 2022 Ocean Salmon Industry Group meeting (OSIG) is scheduled for this coming Monday, February 28, 2022. This pre-season planning meeting will provide a review of the 2021 seasons, take a first look at the 2022 salmon forecasts, and develop a set of Oregon preferred recreational and commercial ocean salmon season concepts via public input to take forward through the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) regulation setting process. The OSIG meeting will be held virtually on-line again this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic limitations.

This ocean season planning meeting is open to all ocean sport fishing anglers and charter operators, commercial salmon troll fishers, and any others interested in participating in the development of the 2022 ocean salmon seasons. Staff from ODFW will provide background materials and presentations and then work with meeting attendees to develop preferred season alternatives to use as guidance moving forward through the Pacific Fishery Management Council's season setting process. The on-line meeting is planned to start at 10:00 AM on Monday, February 28. It is recommended that participants test their system prior to the meeting to iron out any technical problems they may have (there is an option available to call in by phone).  There will be a lunch break between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM that will also give participants time to formulate concepts for proposals. Links to the agenda and briefing materials for the meeting are now posted at https://dfw.state.or.us/mrp/salmon/

Please visit the PFMC’s website for details on their March and April meetings.
