Hatchery and Genetic Management Plans (HGMPs)
for WDFW Hatchery Programs

Lower Columbia River HGMP's

The plans describe the operation of those hatchery programs in the lower Columbia River and the potential effects of the programs on wild fish species, including salmon and steelhead, that are protected by the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). WDFW has updated the draft HGMPs for the lower Columbia River to better reflect current efforts to protect and restore wild salmon and steelhead populations, said Heather Bartlett, hatchery division manager for WDFW. Public comments, WDFW's response and any resulting modifications to the draft HGMPs will be posted on the department's website. The finalized HGMPs will be forwarded to NOAA Fisheries, the federal agency responsible for implementing the ESA.
