The commercial and recreational fisheries are an important part of the Oregon coast’s economy and culture. Each year, OCZMA documents the economic contribution of the fisheries in a partnership with the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW).
OCZMA works closely with people from different sectors of Oregon’s fishing industry on a range of issues: hatchery policy, the groundfish fleet buy-back program, Seafood Oregon/ Brand Oregon marketing, and ocean policy issues that impact fisheries management.
State legislators and members of Oregon’s Congressional Delegation (and their staffs) rely on information OCZMA provides on fisheries. OCZMA doesn’t favor one sector of the fisheries over another. For the good of coastal communities, we want everyone involved in the seafood industry to thrive.
