The Oregon Nearshore Strategy, adopted by the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Commission in December 2005, is a strategic document that establishes priorities for ODFW's management of nearshore marine resources. The Strategy provides a wealth of information on key nearshore species and habitats, information gaps and needs, and opportunities for public/private conservation actions and partnerships.
The Nearshore Strategy is a living document. The Strategy is currently undergoing a review and update due to be completed by October 1, 2015. ODFW has released the public review draft of the updated Nearshore Strategy and is seeking public input. ODFW will also be holding public meetings to provide information about the proposed revisions in North Bend on July 7 and in Newport on July 9. For more information and a link to the updated document see the Oregon Nearshore Strategy page.
