The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) administers the OREHP with advice from a 10-member Ocean Resources Enhancement Advisory Panel (OREAP). The OREAP consists of academic and management agency scientists, representatives of both commercial and recreational fishing groups, and the aquaculture industry. The OREAP provides assistance to the CDFW Director in establishing policy and direction for the OREHP. The annual budget for the OREHP is also determined jointly by the OREAP and CDFW.
Meeting agendas and notes prior to November 2018 can be requested at OREHP@wildlife.ca.gov. The next meeting will be held in Spring 2021.
