Columbia River Commercial Fishing Advisory Group

The purpose of the Advisory Group is to advise the Washington and Oregon Departments of Fish and Wildlife on issues affecting commercial fisheries in the Columbia River.  These issues include optimizing fisheries within Endangered Species Act (ESA) constraints, aid in designing fishery regulations, and refinement of fishing gears and techniques.

  1. Advisors will be selected to represent commercial fishing interests throughout the lower Columbia and Select Areas in both states, and to reflect participation in all segments of the Columbia River commercial fishing sector. 
  2. It is anticipated that the advisors will meet as a group 2-4 times per year, including public meetings held as part of the North of Falcon season planning process.  The Advisory Group will also be expected to provide guidance to the Columbia River Compact through attendance and testimony.
