The primary goal of this project was to understand and to detail the value and economic contribution of marine resources to the shoreside economy and communities of Oregon. More specifically, the objectives were to examine patterns of income, expenditures, and employment in marine related industries such as commercial fishing, charter fishing, recreation, and tourism. To fulfill these objectives, Ecotrust staff reviewed the literature, engaged in extensive coastal outreach, and convened several stakeholder focus groups. We also collected, summarized, and analyzed primary data on coastal businesses and recreational fishing expenditures, and leveraged this data with existing datasets to provide a more complete, comprehensive characterization of Oregon‘s shoreside economy. Lastly, we updated MarineMap, an important decision support tool to inform marine spatial planning, to reflect some of what we have learned about the contributions of marine resources to the shoreside economy. The resulting data, analyses, and tools form a valuable basis for informing the potential siting of renewable ocean energy projects off Oregon, and supporting marine spatial planning more broadly.
