Fish Health Policy adopted

A new rule that clarifies and consolidates fish health policies received approval from the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission Friday.

The goal of the new Fish Health Management Policy is to minimize the effects of fish diseases and agents on Oregonís fish populations by restricting the introduction, amplification or dissemination of disease agents by:

- Controlling fish egg and fish movements;
- Restricting the transfer, import or export of fish disease agents into state waters;
- Implementing treatment and disinfecting strategies when necessary; and
- Inspecting hatcheries and testing for diseases in hatcheries and wild fish.

The Fish Health Management Policy is a companion policy to the Native Fish Conservation Policy and Fish Hatchery Management Policy.
