The Oregon Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit has been a major component of the Oregon State's Department of Fish and Wildlife research and graduate training for most of the department�s history. The Wildlife Unit, which began in 1935, was terminated in 1959 and reestablished 1971. The Fish Unit was established in 1966 and the two units were later combined. We have been fortunate in having a four scientist unit almost continuously since 1971.
