Peer Review Plans


Title and Description:

The information being reviewed is a complete documentation of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) Ocean Recreational Boat Survey (ORBS) recreational fisheries data collection methods. The ORBS program conducts angler-intercept interviews and boat counts to collect data on kept and released fish and angler effort, as well as biological samples. In 2010, NOAA Fisheries Marine Recreational Information Program sponsored an independent review of the ORBS. Since then, ODFW has pilot tested improvements recommended in that review. This documentation outlines the improved survey program and is being reviewed again for potential certification by NOAA Fisheries.
