This website is a group project for Oregon State University's senior capstone class, Problem Solving in Fisheries and Wildlife. We created this site as an outreach product for managers of the Northern Pikeminnow Sport Reward Program (NPSRP) who are new to the program and for those already familiar with it. This site's purpose is to provide a brief overview of the sport reward program, an objective evaluation of the biological, economic, and ethical considerations, and questions/recommendations for future actions.
We thank Brian Sidlauskas, Scott Heppell, Selina Heppell, David Paoletti, and Dan Edge for insightful comments and suggestions for the content of this website. Thanks to Dan Edge and Selina Heppell for guidance on the project idea. We also appreciate the helpful feedback from our peers. Many thanks to the official pikeminnow program, ODFW, PSMFC, BPA, and WDFW for providing the information needed to create this site.
