US Fish and Wildlife, Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission, The Cottonwood School of Science and Civics and OSU Extension 4-H have partnered together to develop a new multi-media curriculum and classroom presentation for 4-8 grade students! We are now recruiting teachers and library media specialists to help us bring this program to Portland metro youth. Pacific Lamprey is an amazing and ancient fish that like the Salmon plays an important ecological and cultural role in the Pacific Northwest. Today Pacific Lamprey is threatened and USFWS biologists and local Pacific Northwest tribes are working hard to protect this important fish. Like the Salmon, Pacific Lamprey are an anadromous fish and they live in both fresh water and the ocean during their lifetime.
