Fish Salvage

Before in-water work on city projects begins, fish biologists in the Science, Fish and Wildlife Division coordinate with contractors to capture and relocate fish from the project area with minimal handling. Staff uses non-lethal methods backpack electro-shocking or seining to capture fish.

Environmental Services staff regularly coordinates with regulatory agencies such as the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and NOAA Fisheries for scientific take permits to conduct fish salvages.
