Abstract In this report, I examine the process of establishing marine reserves and marine
protected areas both from a national and a state perspective. In order to do so, I have
investigated the implementation process currently underway in Oregon. Specifically, I have
chosen to perform a case study of the process at Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve and Marine
Protected Area. I chose this example because of the commendable approach taken by the
community of Port Orford in proposing their site and performing extensive baseline data
collection in submitting their proposal. The Port Orford community demonstrated great marine
resource stewardship and a forward‚Äźminded approach to conservation and sustainability for
their living marine resources in putting together their submission.
Finally, the goal of this paper is to present the lessons learned in the form of a proposed
template for communities and fisheries managers to follow in the proposal and implementation
process of designating and establishing marine reserves and marine protected areas both
locally and nationally. It is my hope that such a proposal could be used to standardize a national
approach to designation and implementation across Regional Fishery Management Councils
(RFMCs) and their associated regional marine ecosystems within the United States.
