Restructuring the Oregon Fishing Industry

The year 2004 was, overall, a very good year for the Oregon commercial fishing industry, according to the draft of a study by Hans Radtke and Shannon Davis, the Research Group. The year represented, in several ways, a turnaround after several down years. That turnaround occurred in part because of changes in the industry’s structure. In fact, the Oregon fishing industry has gone through an overhaul in the past few years, and while it may not be finished, its outlines are now clear.
