Updates from the 5 Year Review

The ODFW Marine Reserves Program met with the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) in Corvallis on Thursday April 13, 2017 to discuss the ODFW Marine Reserves Program’s activities to date, the Marine Reserves Program evaluation due in the year 2023, and how STAC can position itself to lead the best evaluation possible for 2023.

“This meeting was a great kickoff for starting to hone in on what types of syntheses and products will be most informative, and need to be put together by our Program, for the evaluation” said Cristen Don, the Marine Reserves Program Leader at ODFW. “We will be continuing these discussions with STAC over the next year or so as we begin preparing for the Program evaluation” she said.
