The Marine Resources Program

The Marine Resources Program (MRP) is ODFW’s home for management of fish and wildlife species and habitats in the ocean, bays, and estuaries. Based in Newport with field offices in Astoria, Charleston and Brookings, MRP staff are responsible for the monitoring, sampling, research and management of commercial and sport marine fisheries and associated marine habitats. In addition to our fisheries-focused work, MRP is engaged in a wide variety of research, management and policy actions about all aspects of ocean use and conservation.
