SALEM, Ore.—ODFW is seeking new members to represent the public and commercial fishing interests on the commercial Fishery Permit Review Board. Persons interested should fill out this document (pdf) to express their interest in the position and return it to ODFW by Sept. 13, 2017.
The permit review board evaluates limited entry permit denials made by ODFW and considers requests for permit transfers for the following commercial fisheries: sea urchin, roe herring, Columbia River gillnet salmon, ocean troll salmon, ocean shrimp/scallop, ocean crab, sardine, bay clam dive, brine shrimp, blue and black rockfish and nearshore fisheries.
The board is comprised of three commercial fishers representing each fishery plus two at-large members of the public. Board members serve three-year terms.
Members of the board receive no compensation for their service but will be reimbursed for travel and other expenses incurred in the performance of official duties. Applicants must be willing to travel to coast locations and to Salem, although telephone conference calls are used in most cases to reduce travel.
Potential candidates should submit the qualification and information sheet that describes their career and/or public service history. Contact Linda Lytle, 503-947-6112 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
