  • A literature review for a research project being done in partnership with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission, which will look at non-breeding California sea lion males in the Columbia River Basin that have been preying on migratory salmon. This will be done predominantly around Willamette Falls and Bonneville Dam, where past hazing strategies did not prove effective and they decided on lethally removing some individuals. Because of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, this issue had to be taken all the way up to Washington, D.C. where it was approved and gave us a really unique opportunity to look at fresh tissue samples. A review of 19 different publications looked into past information and areas for improvement, emphasizing the significance for this project.
