About me

View Shaun's CV

I am passionate about Oregons great outdoors and our native fish fauna. My current focus is on working with fishery managers, stakeholders, and scientists in areas of conservation need to develop solutions that provide for continued persistence of native species and opportunities for utilization. The long term success of this endevour hinges on being able to account the needs of other users of water resources and on the expectations of Oregon's inhabitants with respect to the balance between conservation and utilization.
