About

The mission of the Columbia River Research Laboratory is to serve the public by providing scientific information to support the stewardship of our Nation’s fish and aquatic resources, with emphasis on the Columbia River basin. As a part of the USGS Western Fisheries Research Center, we conduct objective, relevant research and seek partnerships to help fulfill this mission.
