Abstract: This dataset represents the fish passage barriers identified in the 2019 ODFW Priority Barrier List. The dataset is a subset of the Oregon Fish Passage Barrier Data Standard (OFPBDS) focused on the 2019 priority fish passage barriers.

Purpose: The 2019 ODFW Priority Barriers Dataset is a subset of the features found in the Oregon Fish Passage Barrier Data Standard (OFPBDS) Database. Documentation for the OFPBDS can be found online at with OAR 635-412-0015, staff used the information available at each barrier to create a prioritization equation based on the needs of native migratory fish.ODFW accomplished this by selecting the highest priority barriers within each of the 18 ODFW Fish Districts across the State. Then scoring each artificial obstruction based on standardized methods to develop a list of statewide priority barriers that are ranked within similar groups. More details of the prioritization process can be found in the lineage section of the metadata.
