Ever wondered what lies beneath the surface of Oregon’s ocean? Curious about marine scientific research? The new Oregon Marine Reserves website provides a rare glimpse below the surface of Oregon’s ocean waters and a behind-the-scenes peek at scientists in action.

The website revamp was headed up by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and offers quick and easy access to research news, underwater photos and videos, and information about each marine reserve site along with a comprehensive look at the science and management efforts underway by ODFW and partners. Additionally, the website offers user friendly features such as interactive maps, e-notifications and downloadable GPS coordinates. You can also browse the website’s resource library where you can access documents such as research plans, reports, policy info, vessel contract bid packages, and brochures.

 

We hope you explore the site and discover there’s more beneath the surface.
