Fish conservation plan for coastal rivers to be considered at two August meetings

August 1, 2012

SALEM, Ore. – Stakeholder groups that will advise ODFW on fish management actions for Oregon coastal rivers will meet in Roseburg and Gleneden Beach on Aug. 7 and Aug. 16, respectively.

The meetings are part of the process to develop a Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan that will outline management needs for the conservation of salmon, steelhead and sea-run cutthroat trout along much of the Oregon coast.

According to Tom Stahl, ODFW assistant conservation and recovery program manager, the agency will be asking the stakeholder groups to consider and evaluate options for harvest, hatchery programs, and other management activities.

The times and locations of the meetings are:

  • ROSEBURG, Aug. 7, 10:00 am – 3:30 pm
    Douglas County Library, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd.

  • GLENEDEN BEACH, Aug, 16, 10:00 am – 3:30 pm
    Eden Hall, 6645 Gleneden Beach Loop Road

The meetings are open to the public, who will have a chance to comment on proposed ideas as they develop over the next few months at stakeholders meetings, and in future public meetings and review periods.

ODFW has organized four working groups, one each for the North Coast, Mid-Coast, Umpqua and Mid-South Coast areas.  Each stakeholder group includes representatives of commercial and recreational fishing, tribal, local government, watershed council, conservation, and land use interests.  Federal and state agency representatives will also participate as non-voting members.
