Department of Fish and Wildlife > Web site
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) accomplishes its mission through its fish and wildlife divisions and regional offices. Staff in these divisions and in the regional and field offices are supported by administrative divisions which include information and education, human resources, information systems, and administrative services. Oregon State Police plays a key role in the mission through enforcement of fish and wildlife regulations. The seven-member Fish and Wildlife Commission, appointed by the governor, hires the agency director, sets policy and adopts administrative rules. The director oversees agency administration and the day-to-day operations of the agency.
For the 2013–15 biennium, ODFW staffs 25 district and field offices to provide customer service, operates 33 hatchery facilities and 15 fish-rearing facilities, and manages 16 wildlife areas, with a total of 1,262 full-time equivalent employees.
