The board of directors for ODFW’s Restoration & Enhancement program makes having strong runs of salmon a priority.
To make this happen, R&E has worked strategically with other state agencies and outside partners to complete long-deferred maintenance at hatcheries throughout Oregon. Fees collected as part of angler licenses make this possible.
These improvements have increased fish, and created opportunities to catch them for both sport and commercial fisherman. They have contributed to local economies.
