Technical Advisory Committee

The Board depends on a committee of technical advisors representing various environmental disciplines. In addition to their meeting monthly on research related topics, the committee spends considerable time reviewing habitat protection and restoration project proposals. The committee participates in site visits, evaluating proposals in their benefits to fish and certainty of success and makes recommendations to the Board on funding.
