In addition, the Marine Board partners with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife in matching $2.1 million in federal Sport Fish Restoration funds.

The Marine Board's funding comes from motorboat registration fees and marine fuel taxes paid by boaters. No general fund tax dollars are used to support the agency or its programs. Boater-paid fees go back to boaters in the form of law enforcement services (on-the-water enforcement, training and equipment), education/outreach materials and boating access facilities.
