Surfrider’s goal is to support the successful implementation of the Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve and Marine Protected Area off Port Orford, Oregon. Redfish Rocks was designated as one of the state’s first marine reserves in 2009. Since then, Surfrider members have participated in a community team process to assist the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife in developing a management plan for the site. Success will be measured by adoption and implementation of a management plan that includes effective strategies for: education & outreach; compliance & enforcement; biological monitoring; socioeconomic monitoring; and economic development.
