Boehlert, Director This has been a strong and positive year in HMSC’s development. The HMSC Strategic Plan was finally approved and our Master Plan has been completed; together, these two documents help guide the organization’s future. Several activities this year demonstrate how HMSC is able to address important scientific and social issues in marine and coastal science by taking advantage of the diversity of scientific talent and institutions. Three active projects were highlighted in our first strategic plan annual report. Project CROOS (Collaborative Research on Oregon Ocean Salmon), one of the largest interdisciplinary collaborative industry-scientists fishery projects ever conducted on the West coast, was led at HMSC by the COMES program. The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides undergraduates with hands-on research experience under the Hatfield Marine Science Center Director George Boehlert welcomes visitors to SeaFest 2007mentorship of OSU and agency scientists, resource managers and educators at the HMSC, and its success is evident in the program expansion as the National Science Foundation renewed the award. Finally, the Free Choice Learning Initiative has developed the In the coming year, the HMSC will pursue several new initiatives. HMSC Visitor Center into a social laboratory to conduct research Working with several community and state partners, we hope to on how people learn. Each of these programs demonstrates solidify Yaquina Bay as a national resource in marine science some of the unique attributes of HMSC and its many partners. with an emphasis on creating an infrastructure support base for the ocean observing system. Parallel efforts in the HMSC Visitor HMSC’s many accomplishments for 2007 are described in Center will create exhibits to improve public awareness of these this report. In our educational programs the hiring of two key issues. For college-level education, we will create opportunities positions, the Academic Program Coordinator for HMSC and in experiential marine science for lower division OSU students to Director of Education for Sea Grant, brought new energy to our maintain interest in marine science. We will continue to work to educational enterprise. The challenge of increasing access to aid the development of the National Wave Energy Demonstration instructional and experiential learning opportunities for Center and hope to see increased activity by the College of underrepresented groups in the sciences has been addressed Engineering at HMSC. Finally, we will work to secure funding through both the Ocean Learning Activities in Spanish program to move forward with development of the HMSC Master Plan. A\(Las OLAS) and as one of the key objectives for HMSC’s REU program and other internships. Highlights from HMSC research HMSC’s accomplishments and plans for the future are all programs include geophysical surveys in Antarctic deep waters and dependent upon the cooperation of our many partners and the Mariana Arc in the western Pacific. The Marine Mammal Program stakeholders, from the students and scientists to our many was elevated to Institute status and the addition of two new faculty donors. The work of each and every one is sincerely highlight its ambitious growth plans and future collaborations. appreciated. HMSC has played an important role in fostering development of a comprehensive OSU program in wave energy, helping meet the Governor’s objectives for Oregon leadership in this area. 1 HATFIELD MARINE SCIENCE CENTER ANNUAL REPORT 2006-2007 (Scott Baker and Markus Horning). Michael Morrissey, Director I. ReseaRCH of the Astoria Seafood laboratory took a new position as Superintendent of the Food Innovation Center in Portland while continuing to act as Astoria laboratory director. Paul Reno, a A. Oregon State University microbiologist and fish disease specialist retired in June 2007. Based on the Oregon Invests database, in 2006-2007 COMES programs generated over $12 million in economic impacts and Programs by Stations and Institutes produced an equivalent 30-40 new jobs for Oregon and Pacific Northwest coastal communities. These impacts are the result of Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station research leading to improved utilization of marine resources, Gil Sylvia, Superintendent increased production of commercially harvested and cultured seafood, development of value-added seafood products, and Oregon State University’s Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment improved policies for resource management.
