OREHP Advisory Panel Meetings

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.

The next OREAP meeting will be held on March 9, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802. Parking is available at the Aquarium of the Pacific parking structure for $8 with validation. For questions, please email OREHP@wildlife.ca.gov.
