dc.description.abstract The state of Oregon is developing a comprehensive plan to guide the potential siting of renewable ocean energy projects in Oregon’s Territorial Sea. To this end, the state is revising its Territorial Sea Plan (TSP), and has begun collecting information on the spatial extent of human uses that provide economic and socio-cultural benefits. One data gap identified was the distribution and spatial extent of commercial, charter, and recreational fisheries. Ecotrust and others engaged in collecting relevant information on these use activities. In the near term, the resulting data set forms the basis for siting decisions for energy projects that minimize impacts to the marine ecosystem and existing human uses. Longer term, these data are also useful for other marine spatial planning processes and form a baseline for subsequent monitoring and evaluation research of management measures. Our research team developed and deployed an interactive, custom computer interview instrument, Open OceanMap, to collect geo-referenced information from commercial, charter, and recreational fishermen about the extent and relative importance of Oregon marine waters. Data collection occurred in two stages: March-May 2009 and December 2009–September 2010. We compiled these data in a geographic information system (GIS) that we delivered to the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD). This report, which details the approach and methods we used to collect, compile, and analyze the data collected, completes our deliverables. Conducting research in coastal communities is as challenging as it is rewarding. We have learned a tremendous amount from the commercial, charter, and recreational fishermen who participated in this study as well as the countless other community members and observers of this project. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship Oregon Wave Energy Trust and the OSU Libraries cooperate to provide long-term access to OWET reports. OSU's ScholarsArchive is the digital repository for continual access to the report. The OWET website, http://www.oregonwave.org, provides immediate access to OWET funded reports. Funding for this effort was provided by The David & Lucile Packard Foundation, the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD), and the Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET). Collectively, the resulting data, analyses, and tools will form a valuable basis not only for informing the potential siting of renewable ocean energy projects off Oregon, but also in supporting marine spatial planning processes more broadly. en_US
