In 2008, the state of Oregon began a process to designate and implement a limited system of marine reserve sites within state waters. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is the lead agency responsible for implementation of Oregon’s system of marine reserve sites. An important component of marine reserve implementation is monitoring and evaluation. In 2009, ODFW established a program focused on marine reserves implementation that includes staff responsible for the design and implementation of a Human Dimensions Monitoring Program that is to provide information for marine reserves evaluation and to be used in support of nearshore resource management.
