The Native Fish Investigations Program is part of the Conservation and Recovery Program within Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. We work statewide to provide science support to fish managers and the public.

We believe that Oregon’s rivers and lakes, and their native fish, are a part of our identity as a state. These living waters sustain our communities and provide a place to get away, to learn about nature, to fish, and to recharge. We believe in ensuring that these places and the native fish they support are here for our current and future generations to enjoy.
