Rockfish & The Power of Experience

The ride continues.

This past summer, TRFF board member Chris Rurik, along with Helen Helfand, traveled the full length of Oregon’s stunning coastline (nearly 400 miles of narrow roads!) to observe and write about Oregon’s newly designated marine reserves, which were created in a truly collaborative manner with community input.

Now, the second of five dispatches is live on National Geographic’s Ocean Views blog. The first dispatch focused on the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve and the town of Manzanita; the second dispatch explores rockfish, the people who fish for them, and the relationship between scientific and experiential knowledge.

Feel free to email us with any comments, and stay tuned for more posts.

Enjoy!
