fish warden

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is an agency of the government of the U.S. state of Oregon responsible for programs protecting Oregon fish and wildlife resources and their habitats. The agency operates hatcheries, issues hunting and angling licenses, advises on habitat protection, and sponsors public education programs. Its history dates to the 1878 establishment of the office of Columbia River Fish Warden. Enforcement of Oregon's Fish and Game laws has been the responsibility of the Oregon State Police rather than separate wardens, since 1931, when that agency was established.
