Fish conservation plan for coastal rivers to be considered at four stakeholder workshops

August 30, 2012

SALEM, Ore. – Four stakeholder groups that will advise ODFW on fish management actions for Oregon coastal rivers will meet in September and October to discuss specific proposals for four different areas of the coast.

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. ODFW has organized four working groups, one each for the North Coast, Mid-Coast, Umpqua and Mid-South Coast areas.

Each workshop will span several days and, according to Tom Stahl, ODFW assistant conservation and recovery program manager, participants will consider and evaluate options for harvest, hatchery programs, and other management activities.

The times and locations of the workshops are:
