OCEAN’s efforts pay off for saltwater anglers
Oregon Coalition for Educating ANglers (OCEAN) educates and enables marine anglers to be better stewards of ocean resources. OCEAN works closely with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW); particularly the Department’s Restoration and Enhancement Program.
ODFW reports that our efforts are paying off. A recent survey indicates that 70% of anglers interviewed reported using barotrauma release devices – extending the fishing seasons for rockfish. This trend is expected to continue with even greater success in the future. OCEAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Check out the vendors of the 2016 Saltwater Sportsmen’s Show, and visit their websites.
We are already working on headline speakers for 2017.
We’ll announce them here as they are confirmed. Stay POSTED.
Demonstrations – Included with tradeshow admission.
Learn how to rig tackle with hands-on demonstrations. There is a small charge for tackle building materials, but you can take your project home. Learn how to use barotrauma descender devices and salmon release devices so we will have NO FLOATERS. OCEAN donates these devices at no cost to you as part of our conservation efforts. Their retail value exceeds $15. Admission fees help to defray this cost.
