Scope and Content Note

The collection includes images for a presentation produced by the Washington Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program titled, "A Time of Decision and A Question of Balance." Also included is an audiotape recording of the presentation, produced with the cooperation of OSU Sea Grant.

The collection also features photographs of the Walter G. Jones Fisheries Development Award ceremonies; seafood processing facilities; Marine Advisory Program Extension agents involved in research and community outreach; students engaged in research; staff meetings and workshops; the OSU Marine Science Center; Sea Grant Director Bill Wick being interviewed on television; and the research vessels "Cayuse" and "Yaquina."

Likewise included are prints from a Seatauqua workshop on coastal geology conducted by John Byrne from Sea Grant Extension and a slide show on the Sea Grant program, "Sea Grant Story," developed by Gwil Evans of the Extension Service Communication Department.

A number of the images taken for the Marine Advisory Program were featured in a draft copy of Sea Grant's 1970-1972 Biennial Report, a copy of which can be found in P 185.

An addition to the collection (Accession 2014:017) is made up of photographic images taken and collected by Sea Grant and Extension Service staff for use in publications, presentations, and documentation of programs. In addition to portrait shots of Sea Grant staff, these images depict hatchery operations, oyster farms, seabirds, fishing vessels, flooding in coastal towns, clamming, "Oyster Fest" community event, longline aquaculture, tours/workshops, and the OSU fish research laboratories.

Another addition to the collection (Accession 2014:047) is made up of moving image recordings produced by Oregon Sea Grant on VHS videotape, beta cam cassette, U-matic tape, film, HI 8 cassette, and videotape reel. Numbering 57 recordings in total, these reels and tapes include master copies, promos, and raw stock footage from various productions, such as: "Farmers of the Sea," "Grey Whale: A Radio Tagging Experiment," "Estuary: Columbia's Link with the Sea," "The Return of the Salmon," and "Mammals of the Sea." Among the other recordings in this transfer, the subject matter includes: Celillo Falls, deep ocean vents, crab meat extraction, Columbia River gillnetters, and the Oregon otter trawl fishing industry. A couple of the reels also contain public service announcements.
