Oregon is a state in the North Western region of the United States, bordered by Washington to the north; Idaho to the east; California and Nevada to the south; and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The state’s natural resources are managed by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The department’s mission is to protect and enhance Oregon’s fish and wildlife and their habitats for use and enjoyment by present and future generations. To support this mission the state implement the Oregon Conservation Strategy, an overarching plan to conserve Oregon’s fish and wildlife, and their habitats. It combines the best available science and conservation priorities. The Wildlife Division has direct responsibility for monitoring the numbers and health of wildlife species, setting population conservation and management objectives, overseeing wildlife habitat restoration and maintenance, and regulating harvest of game animals. The Fish Division oversees the harvest of fish, protection of fish, enhancement of fish populations through habitat improvement, and the rearing and release of fish into public waters. ODFW maintains hatcheries throughout the state to provide fish for program needs.
Per the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Oregon is home to 703,000 hunters and fishermen who spend $929 million annually and support 14,769 jobs.
