Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon is in the midst of major changes to the way it manages use of the ocean off its shores. Consideration for all stakeholder groups will contribute to defensible decisions regarding the use of ocean and coastal resources. This relies on an understanding of the various stakeholders in ocean resources, which is lacking for some groups. This research sought to improve the understanding of one such group, which to date has not been thoroughly documented: the non-consumptive recreational ocean user (NROU) community. The NROU group includes surfers, kayakers, boaters, divers, and many others, and it makes economic, cultural, and environmental contributions to Oregon’s coastal communities. Members of this group are both residents of coastal communities and visitors from other regions of Oregon, and their numbers are expected to grow. This report details what we have learned from research about this group as a whole and by the subgroups that comprise this community of interest: what they require for recreation, their values and opinions, and where they are recreating. We also sought to gauge their attitudes toward alternative energy, specifically marine renewable energy, which is an emerging use and stakeholder of the ocean off of Oregon’s coast. This new ocean use has the potential to conflict with existing uses, if not carefully planned. Our study aims to provide information on the NROU community to help facilitate sound ocean planning for all uses and users.
