For 50 years, Smith-Root, Inc of Vancouver, Washington, has been the world’s leading provider of technology for fisheries conservation. Most importantly, its employees see stewardship as one of their primary objectives.
Smith-Root manufactures, engineers, and provides training to aquatic resource managers across the globe on specialized equipment to monitor and aid fish populations. The Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership Scientific Team understands this first-hand, and regularly uses specialized Smith-Root equipment to assess habitat restoration projects and fish populations in the lower Columbia River.
Smith-Root is deeply honored to be a long-time supporter of the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, and looks forward to the upcoming 15th Annual Dinner & Art Gala at the Columbia River Yacht Club.
Smith-Root’s President and CEO, Jeff Smith, serves on the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership’s Board of Directors, and recently explained, “With each having a team of extremely dedicated scientists and executives, the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership and Smith-Root share similar frameworks and conservation objectives. Smith-Root is committed to the strong relationship we have with the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership that continues to deliver heightened conservation awareness and ‘in-the-field’ environmental education activities.”
