(Update July 2, 2018) The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, in partnership with California Sea Grant, recently completed an independent scientific evaluation of the Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program. While decisions about the future direction of the program are ultimately up tothe OREHP Advisory Panel, the Department and the Legislature, the scientific evaluation team recommends a science-based and public participatory decision-making process.
The Department is interested in gathering input from interested stakeholders on value, participation, and benefits of the program, as well as input on the future direction of the program. Your feedback and input is requested before July 31, 2018, to help inform the future of OREHP. Please contact Ms. Valerie Taylor, OREHP Program Coordinator, Department of Fish and Wildlife, with your thoughts at Valerie.Taylor@wildlife.ca.gov or 562-342-7170
