RESEARCH AND OUTREACH PROGRAMS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

Overall Program Thrust

Research and outreach has focused on a broad range of fisheries and aquaculture issues with particular emphasis
on market development and public policy for Oregon fisheries. A significant subset of research and outreach has
focused on the Pacific whiting fishery. A number of interdisciplinary research projects with the Astoria Seafood
Technology Laboratory and Department of Bioresource Engineering have evolved during the last five years.
Much of the research on Pacific whiting has taken place in support of successful development of a shore-based
industry. This work has involved close working relations with the Oregon fishing industry, including serving as
an active participant of various fisheries organizations and organizing one regional and two international
conferences attended by over 350 individuals representing 15 countries. The whiting fishery, which did not exist
as a major shore-based industry until 1992, today is Oregon's leading fishery, representing approximately $20
million in new investment and generating approximately $30-$60 million in annual state income.

A brief description of research and outreach programs and accomplishments are summarized below:

Development of the Pacific Whiting Fishery

Research and outreach has been part of an interdisciplinary program supporting industry development and
focusing on market issues, product development, quality assurance, bioeconomic modeling, and public policy.
As a member of the newly formed Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station, I served on the Pacific Whiting
Steering Committee. In cooperation with the Oregon seafood industry, Oregon Department of Agriculture, and
Oregon Economic Development Department I was Principal Investigator of a 12-month intensive research
program exploring market opportunities and public policy. Research included 10 weeks of travel conducting in-
depth, personal surveys of national and international wholesalers and distributors in order to develop "requisite"
market information.

This market research was summarized in a 170-page report distributed and sold (through the Oregon Coastal
Zone Management Association) to over 200 industry and government firms and agencies. The Pacific Fisheries
Management Council appended the market report to the 1991 Pacific whiting management plan developed.
Results of this market research have been presented at four professional meetings, six industry conferences, in
three refereed book chapters, various newsletters, one Master's thesis, and one refereed journal (Canadian
Journal of Agricultural Economics). The Master's thesis received a National Sea Grant Award for best research
in "Human Dimensions" category.



                                                        2
Research on bioeconomic modeling and public policy of the Pacific whiting fishery has been based on
recognition of the interdependencies between market development and fisheries management. Although this
work originally received only luke-warm support from industry due to its technical complexities, this research is
now strongly supported by industry groups and state and regional agencies. This work, together with the market
analysis, has been cited by the Pacific Fisheries management Council and National Marine Fisheries Service
investigators in their analysis of the economics and management of the Pacific whiting fishery. The results of
this work have been used to justify extended fishing seasons and distribution of effort across geographical
fishery areas. Results have been presented at four professional meetings, three industry conferences, and in
testimony before the Pacific Fisheries Management Council, Oregon House Ways and Means Committee, and
U.S. Congressional Committee on Small Business. Research has been published as a Ph.D. dissertation and
three refereed journal articles are in press or in submission. I continue to build on this work with ongoing
Master's and Ph.D. research, which explores the relationships between market development, seafood quality,
and management of the Pacific whiting resource.

Cooperative research projects with the Astoria Seafood Laboratory, the Pacific Northwest Seafood Association,
and the Oregon Trawl Commission have explored development of quality assurance (QA) standards for Pacific
whiting products. Research has involved extensive survey work with seafood buyers and consumers to estimate
the demand for alternative QA programs. In cooperation with fishermen and seafood processors, it is hoped that
this work will be used to design pilot-scale marketing projects to test the potential advantages of QA programs
for alternative products and market sectors. To date, results of preliminary research have been presented at two
professional meetings, two industry conferences, two non-refereed papers have been published and two refereed
publications are in review. In addition, to support the development of this program, an international conference
was co-organized with IIFET with over 100 attendees from nine different nations. Proceedings from the
conference have been published by Oregon Sea Grant.

One additional research project involving Pacific whiting products has recently been initiated in cooperation
with the Astoria Seafood Laboratory, the Pacific Northwest Seafood Association, and funded by the Oregon
Economic Development Department. This project is designed to evaluate market potential for value-added
products developed from Pacific whiting. Pilot-scale projects in processing plants have been conducted and
processed products have been evaluated using scientifically designed surveys for national industry seafood
buyers and regional consumers. Results have been analyzed, reported to industry groups and published in
various industry and scientific outlets.

Wild and Cultured Salmon

Research and outreach has focused on helping industry develop alternative strategies for production and
marketing of Oregon salmon in a global marketplace dominated by cultured product. In cooperation with the
Oregon Salmon Commission, research has explored actual and perceived differences between various types of
wild and farmed salmon. Research has included consumer surveys, taste tests, and in cooperation with the
Astoria Seafood Laboratory, laboratory analysis. Research has been summarized in a 110 page Experiment
Station Report and over 175 copies have been printed and distributed to private firms and government agencies.
Results have been reported at four different professional meetings and at meetings of the Oregon Salmon
Commission. Research has been published in one refereed book chapter and two papers have been published in
refereed interdisciplinary journals.




                                                        3
Albacore Tuna

Over the last year a research project has been initiated to develop a comprehensive marketing management plan
for the small-boat Oregon tuna fleet. This fleet has rapidly expanded due to the collapse of the salmon fishery.
This interdisciplinary research project includes researchers from the Astoria Seafood Laboratory and the
Department of Bioresource Engineering. Economic and market research focus on developing optimal value-
added products based on quality assurance programs using HACCP principals. Research has so far concentrated
on developing a market survey and product development. A one-day workshop has been organized to explore
industry issues and generate industry support. Research is expected to be completed by early 1996.

Marine Outreach Education

Research and outreach has focused on understanding the market for nature-based marine education and
exploring development of "optimal" program design strategies. This survey-based research, sponsored by the
Marine Advisory Service and a Holt scholarship, includes information from participants, non-participants,
instructors, and other educational institutions. Surveys have been completed and are now being analyzed.
Research results in the form of a 120 page report have been presented to managers of the Seatauqua program at
the Hatfield Marine Science Center who have used the results to redesign the program and develop alternative
marketing and pricing strategies. This work has been presented at one professional meeting. One manuscript
has been published in a refereed journal, and two additional manuscripts are in preparation.

URI/OSU Research on Seafood Markets

Approximately 20 percent of my research has been funded by a USDA "Special Grant" designed to explore
seafood markets and public and private policy. This joint research project was co-sponsored by the University
of Rhode Island and Oregon State University. Unique features of this grant include an "expert" advisory panel
made up of industry and government seafood specialists and a peer reviewed publication series. The grant was
recently terminated and provided support for graduate students and basic and applied research and outreach
education described above.

Other Research

Other research has focused on market power in fisheries (published in Natural Resources Modeling),
aquacultural effluent and public policy (published in American Journal of Agricultural Economics), portfolio
approaches for fish processing (now being completed), and market channel relations in fisheries markets
(recently completed and in review). A project analyzing approach for maximizing donations for the Hatfield
Marine Science Center Public Wing is ongoing. In addition a new project to optimally integrate tourism and
aquaculture has been published.

TEAM ACTIVITIES:

I continue to conduct interdisciplinary research with the Astoria Seafood Laboratory and Bioresource
Engineering on Pacific whiting and albacore tuna. Have participated in four major multidisciplinary research
projects with the Department of Food Technology, the Astoria Seafood Laboratory, the Department of
Bioresource Engineering, and the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station. These projects involved
laboratory and field research including consumer and industry evaluation of primary and value-added seafood
products. Most of these projects have been organized in cooperation with other private and public groups
including the Oregon Trawl Commission, the Mid-Water Trawlers Cooperative, the Oregon Coastal Zone
Management Association, the Pacific Northwest Seafood Association, the Oregon Department of Agriculture,
and the Oregon Department of Economic Development.



INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITIES:

Have retained a good working relationship with Roberto Enriquez, former student and now faculty member at
the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California in Ensenada, Mexico. Continued collaboration has led to various
publications and a research proposal to the U.S.-Mexican Science Foundation. From August 1-15, 1993, I
taught a class of 12 Mexican graduate students at the Universidad Autonoma. These were short courses (for
graduate credit) in seafood marketing and seafood business. Relationships which were developed during this
period led to a meeting in Ensenada, Mexico, on August 11, 1994, to discuss the potential for cooperative
research and industry ventures between Oregon and Mexican individuals and firms. Possibilities for a joint
workshop on joint ventures are now being pursued.

I have maintained a close working relationship with Roberto Enriquez at the Universidad Autonoma de Baja
California in Ensenada, Mexico, in conducting fisheries economics research.

I have collaborated with an interdisciplinary team in New Zealand on developing a management plan for the
hoki fishery and am developing a bioeconomic management model for the New Zealand Challenger Scallop
Corporation.
