Oregon's Hyder to leave council

Roy Hyder, Oregon's longtime representative on the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, is retiring after the council's June 5-14 meeting in Juneau.

That's the word from Michelle Dennehy, spokeswoman for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The council, based in Anchorage, helps regulate federal fisheries off Alaska. It has 11 voting members from Alaska, Washington and Oregon, with Oregon holding only one seat.

"We don't have a replacement yet, but we're talking about it," Dennehy said.

Hyder occupies Oregon's council seat as an alternate for the state's fish and wildlife director.
