NEWPORT, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will discuss the commercial black and blue rockfish and nearshore fisheries at three public meetings in Brookings, Port Orford and Pacific City in late September and early October.
Geared primarily to commercial fishers with black and blue rockfish and nearshore permits, the agenda for the meetings includes a review of the 2014 season to date, updates from the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC), a review of the process for setting the 2015 regulations and an opportunity for the industry and others to comment on the state management for the 2015 season.
For 2015, the PFMC has proposed harvest reductions to blue and other nearshore rockfish, changes to lingcod trip limits in winter months, and a reorganization of the other fish stock complex.
Meeting dates and locations are listed below. All meetings will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
- Monday, Sept. 29, Best Western, 16008 Boat Basin Rd., Brookings
