Paid Positions

Fishery Technician III (temporary)
Closes on: Mar 31, 2015

The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission assists four tribes in the co-management of their treaty fishing rights within the Columbia River Basin. A key to ensuring our member tribes have a sustainable fishery is the ability to collect and assess information on the status of anadromous and resident fish populations and their habitats within the Columbia River Basin. The position offered is associated with the Fish Science Department’s Habitat Group. This group assists CRITFC and the four treaty tribes with collection and analysis of data pertaining to stream habitat conditions, habitat restoration, and stream ecology.

This position will focus primarily on monitoring status and trends in habitat conditions for ESA-listed spring Chinook salmon in the Grande Ronde River Basin. Stream habitat data will be collected at 25 sites in the Upper Grande Ronde River and Catherine Creek basins using the Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP) protocol (, a broad standardized monitoring program currently being implemented in 18 different watersheds across the Columbia River basin and other areas in the Pacific Northwest. The primary objectives of these positions are to collect data necessary to 1) Assess current status and trends in fish habitat characteristics considered to be key limiting factors (particularly water temperature, pool habitats, streamflow, and fine sediment) to viability of spring Chinook salmon populations, and 2) Evaluate effectiveness of stream restoration actions aimed at improving key limiting habitat factors.
