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.
The Columbia River Research Laboratory was established in 1978 to address fishery issues in the Columbia River basin. Currently, the CRRL conducts research on fish and aquatic issues throughout the Columbia River basin and across the western United States. The CRRL is located in Cook, Washington, in the Columbia River Gorge east of Portland, Oregon.
