The 2016 Nongame Native Fish Workshop
The Native Fish Committee of the Oregon Chapter American Fisheries Society organizes annual field workshops featuring nongame native fish in Oregon. This year, the committee will study three nongame native fish found in the Umpqua River; the Umpqua Chub, Dace, and Pikeminnow. Species experts will lead discussions and field sampling to assist workshop participants to understand the biology of the species and associated management challenges. This is an opportunity to experience the species and their habitat. Click here for more details.
