Collecting along Oregon Coast

This is more or less the collection bible for where, when, and how much for the state of Oregon.

Looks like everywhere else but in these areas is open for collection, jetties, docks, what ever else as long as its not in the aboved named locations.

Sounds great about the lumpsuckers! Practically the coolest fish in the hobby. Good luck with the pipefish.

I sent this email to ODFW a couple weeks ago
AquaticEngineer wrote:I am curious what the policies regarding sales of non-commercial / non-sport invertebrates are? I am able to find information about what you can take and how many, but nothing about if I were to take a starfish alive and sell it.

Also, what if there was no profit involved and just an exchange of ownership?

Do you know where I can find this information?

Thanks,
Stuart

Got this back from them today:
Hi Stewart,
Sorry I’m slow getting back to you—your email got buried.
I talked with two of my shellfish biologists and here are their thoughts (see below). To get a more definitive answer you will need to be more specific. If you have a specific plan you could always run it past the Oregon State Police to see what they think of it. They are the one’s who actually enforce fish and game regulations.

Thanks for asking. Let me know if I can help further.

My three cents might include an interpretation on “exchange of ownership”. I think that if he gives them away (complete with transfer record) he could probably be given something in return. As long as he’s following all the regs, he could give scott his limit of softshells and scott could be so moved by that gesture of gererosity that scott might give stuart the limit of crab that he just grabbed while diving. I agree that if it turned into a business type venture then it would be commercial and would require standard permits.

We might suggest to him in a very basic statement that commercial exchanges require permits and he could check with Arthur on what he might need.

Ok, that’s all for now, gotta go get clams.

Hey Brandon,

If they are selling them, it is commercial.

If they are bartering with them, I would guess it is also commercial

In either of these cases, permitting is not easy.

If he is eating them, all is well and ownership can be “transferred”

If it is “sport” harvest to go in an aquarium they cannot transport them live technically, we have no allowances built in regs for home aquariums… Arlene has dealt with this issue many times, and would suggest talking to her.
Thanks,
Scott

From what I understand, it is the transport that is buried in the gray area.....not the collecting of the animal. As ridiculous as it sounds, the regs suggest that transporting live animals is regulated....but, taking a dead starfish and transporting it...is not. If it is for human consumption, then it is OK dead or alive. I find it disturbing that the end use justifies the regulation. I hope I'm wrong here and that you find out the regs are more rational. There are transportation permits I believe though.

Going collecting this sunday with my brother in Newport. I'll make sure and take lots of pictures of where we are collecting. We'll probably spend most of our time along the south jetty just up the road from the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
Here's a GOOGLE MAPS LINK to where we are going.

Tides were too high for us to collect anything cool, but I did manage to get a cooler full of quarter size and bigger rock for my substrate. Its looking much better now that the tank bottom is covered. Cool

Yeah its kinda cool because it has an access road that runs parrallel to it the whole length and on the land side you can see it build up those man made tide pools. In the past when I've went at low tide its full of starfish, and hermits and other cool stuff.

Also, tons of divers go out there along the jetty. I saw like 7-8 while I was there. Next time I'm going to see if I can get em to bring me up something nice and I'll buy em lunch Very Happy

Bribery or business?

Or a cunning strategy to allow yourself access to otherwise unavailable livestock?

And the coolest part is that the tides will be cooperating with me during the trip. High tide is on Friday the 19th is at 10am with a +6.7 and then low tide is at 5:29pm with a 0.00 tide. So the tide will be going out almost the entire day I am able to collect Happy Dance

Then on Saturday the 20th high tide is 10:34 am with a +7.0 and then low tide is at 6:04pm with a -0.4

So both days the rocks should be well exposed during the time I will be there to collect. Just gotta get prepped with a hold over setup for the night with cold packs and airstones.......and find time to entertain the wife..... love
