What is the Oregon Albacore Commission?

August is Oregon Albacore Month“Be it resolved by the Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon: That we, the members of the Seventy-ninth Legislative Assembly, declare August as Oregon Albacore Tuna Month and encourage all Oregonians to join in this observance.” July 18, 2017
The Oregon Albacore Commission (OAC) was formed by an act of the Oregon Legislature in October 1999 and is a part of the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s (ODA) Commodity Commission Program.

The nine members of the Commission – five producers (fishermen), three handlers (processors), and one public member – are appointed by the ODA director and serve three-year terms. The Commission is funded by an assessment rate of .01 of the cash value on all Albacore landed in the state, split equally between the harvester and the ‘first receiver’.

The OAC has a minimum of two public meetings during the year, including an annual budget hearing held in May or early June. The OAC’s primary activities include marketing & promotion, information dissemination, consumer education and research. The Commission exhibits at major seafood and food industry trade shows under the Seafood OREGON umbrella with the state’s three other seafood commodity commissions. The OAC produces marketing materials, furnishes ‘supplier contacts’ and in general, works to enhance the use and consumption of ‘troll caught’ Albacore.
