An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play

Port boundaries reach north to Otter Rock, east up to six miles inland, south to Seal Rock, and west to the Pacific Ocean. Commercial and sport fishing, fish processing, shipping, tourism, recreation, and lumber and wood processing are the area’s major industries.

Rick Fuller, Director of Operations, has accepted a new position in Portland starting January 1st. This is a wonderful opportunity for Rick. Rick has done much for the Port in his five years here. Rick set the tone by raising the maintenance bar at MOC-P and was hired to be the Director of Operations almost two years ago to raise that bar for the rest of the Port. Since that time, Rick has produced numerous manuals, facilitated extensive staff training and worked very closely with our operational staff to empower our managers to “own” their facilities. He’s been tough at times, but it’s been with a purpose, and Port staff will miss his direction, consultation and humor.

Management will be discussing next steps to recruit for a new Director Of Operations.
