Port Orford Community Stewardship Area

Port Orford is the top producing port of live fish in Oregon. The community is dependent upon the nearshore live fish fishery. There is great interest in promoting sustainable fishing practices and local science/research that will contribute to sustainable management of the fishery.

In order to protect our ocean resources over the long term, area fishermen created The Port Orford Ocean Resources Team, a non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable fishing practices and marine biological diversity. They created the Port Orford Community Stewardship Area, 1,320 square miles, which includes ther territorial sea out to the three mile limit and the adjacent watershed land area to facilitate this.
