2013 Fresh Seafood Calendar for the Central Oregon Coast

Posted July 28, 2013

Fresh Seafood on the Central Oregon Coast

Summer is a beautiful time to visit Newport. It is also the best time to purchase fresh seafood caught off the Oregon coast to take home. There are many local seafood markets located in Newport where you can purchase fresh fish. You can also buy fish directly off some of the fishing boats at a substantial savings. Fresh seafood is delicious anyway it is prepared – baked, fried, barbecued or canned.

2013 Harvest dates for the Central Oregon Coast are:

  • Chinook Salmon: April 1- August 29; Sept. 4 – Oct. 29
  • Pacific Halibut: July 24; August 7 and 21; Sept 4 and 18 (dates are open until the quota is reached)
  • Albacore Tuna: June – October
  • Pink Shrimp: April 1 – October 31
  • Flounder, Sole, Rockfish, Lingcod: Throughout the year
  • Dungeness Crab: Dec 1, 2013 – August 14, 2014
