Oceanographic Monitoring: We successfully retrieved our oceanographic moorings at the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve and Cape Meares Comparison Area this month, with the help of the F/V Lady Lee out of Garibaldi. The sensors have been collecting data on temperature, salinity and oxygen.
Fall Season: Staff are presently submerged in data analysis and writing which will continue through the fall. This is part of the development of the ODFW Marine Reserves Program Synthesis Report, which will report on the program’s activities and monitoring over the last 10 years. The Synthesis Report will be released in early 2022.
