About Julie Harris
Julie’s main responsibilities are to conduct and support study design, data analysis, demographic modeling, and writing for studies completed at CRFWCO to support conservation and management of fish, fisheries, and aquatic habitats in the Columbia River Basin. Julie also provides statistical support to other fisheries professionals and to the National Wildlife Refuges Program. Julie is involved in information exchange and conservation of Pacific Lamprey. In addition, Julie is the coordinator of the CRFWCO monthly seminar series.
