Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve Management Plan Adopted

Victory | April 09 2012

Ocean Protection

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.

Ocean Protection

The Surfrider Foundation works to protect our ocean and address the dangers to it, today and in the future. Our Ocean Protection Initiative includes grassroots campaigns to establish and support Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), oppose new offshore oil drilling and seismic testing, participate in regional ocean planning, and ensure renewable ocean energy does not damage our ocean.
