The Oregon Coordinating Council on Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia was created by the Oregon Legislature in 2017 to ensure a coordinated and effective response to the threats of ocean acidification and hypoxia to Oregon’s cultural and commercial ocean resources. The council is co-led by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Oregon State University and is comprised of representatives from Oregon State agencies, the Governor, the Oregon Ocean Science Trust, Oregon Sea Grant, a conservation organization, shellfish mariculture interests, fishing interests, the academic research community, and Oregon tribes. The council will review activities advancing knowledge of and adaptation to the impacts of ocean acidification and hypoxia on Oregonians and make recommendations on additional measures that Oregon should take to prepare for further future impacts.
