Pacific Lamprey Policy Five-Year Review and Technical Exchange
The Pacific Lamprey Conservation Agreement Policy Committee 5-Year Review was held on December 5, 2017, in Portland, Oregon at the Oregon Convention Center. As a follow-up to the 2012 Lamprey Summit III, Policy partners gathered to discuss progress on lamprey conservation.
