      ‘Capturing Value by Keeping Local Seafood Local’ on the Oregon Coast 

      This week, the USDA awarded the Oregon Coast Visitors Association (OCVA) $735,200 for a grant entitled, “Capturing Value by Keeping Local Seafood Local.”  This effort will expand the regional distribution network of smaller seafood and aquaculture producers on the Oregon Coast whose annual operating budgets are under $1,000,000. If interested, visit OregonCoastFoodVision.com to learn more and seek out potential connections and alignment with this effort.
      In the next few years, OCVA intends to raise $15 million in additional investments to support this hyper-local seafood infrastructure project. This will support the smallest family fishers, processors and distributors to ensure enough seafood caught in Oregon, stays in Oregon to supply schools, hospitals, food stores, and of course Oregon Coast restaurants.
