Fish & Wildlife News


The Council closed the formal comment period on the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program recommendations on February 8. The recommendations and the comments on the recommendations are posted on the Council’s website at www.nwcouncil.org/amend.

The end of the formal comment period on the recommendations does not signal the end of the Council’s public process for amending the Fish and Wildlife Program. The Council will now assess the recommendations and comments and prepare draft program amendments. Interested persons and organizations may continue to make their views known to the Council on any issue associated with the program amendment process. The Council will release draft program amendments for another formal public review and comment process later this year.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to hearing from you.
