Columbia FRO biologist Jennifer Johnson completed Fisheries Information System (FIS) training at the National Conservation Training Center,n February 21-22.


This year’s course included 10 participants representing eight regions.


The FIS web-based database simplifies data entry, retrieval and reporting, and provides “real time” data access to the Fisheries Program. The course included both lectures and “hands-on” learning in the computer lab.


Objectives of the course included: describing the connection between FIS data, the Fisheries Strategic Plan, performance measures, and the budget formulation process; explaining the connectivity of the modules within FIS; writing relevant, accurate, and concise FIS projects; and creating summary reports relevant to field station, regional and Washington reporting requirements.

This training will help the Columbia FRO produce accurate needs and accomplishment modules in a timely manner.
