Learn more about the Oregon Nearshore Strategy at ODFW public meetings

June 26, 2015

SALEM, Ore – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is hosting two public meetings to get input on a draft revision of the Oregon Nearshore Strategy, a non-regulatory planning document that provides a conservation blueprint for actions that benefit Oregon’s marine species and habitats.

            July 7, North Bend – 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., North Bend Public Library, 1800 Sherman Ave.

            July 9, Newport – 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Holiday Inn Express, 135 SE 32nd Street.

ODFW staff will present information on the draft revision of the Nearshore Strategy and take public comments. Comments can also be emailed to or mailed to his attention at ODFW Marine Program, 2040 SE Marine Science Dr., Newport OR 97365. Comment period closes July 20, 2015. The draft strategy revision is posted here.

The Nearshore Strategy addresses species and habitats found in the nearshore ocean and saline portions of estuaries. It identifies priority actions in three main focus areas that contribute to conservation and sustainable use of nearshore resources: education and outreach; research and monitoring; and policy and management.

The strategy is part of a nationwide framework through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to encourage voluntary fish and wildlife conservation, and provide a central place for state, federal, tribal and local governments and special interest groups to find information to help reach their conservation goals.
