About the Necanicum River Estuary

The Necanicum River estuary is located on the Oregon coast at Seaside. The estuary is approximately 451 acres in area and has a watershed of approximately 87 square miles.

The Necanicum River estuary is designated as a Conservation estuary under the Oregon Estuary Classification system. The geomorphology of the area is that of a Bar Built estuary.

The Necanicum River estuary is located in Clatsop County. The principle industries of Clatsop County are fishing, lumber, and agriculture. The Port of Astoria, created in 1914, is one of 23 Oregon port districts which support the trade and commerce of Oregon. The population of Clatsop County was 34,500 in 1997, a 3.6% increase over 1990.

The lazy Necanicum River meanders the length of Seaside, from grassy-banked urban picnic areas to pristine tide flats. A good place to launch a canoe exploration of the Necanicum River is at Quatat Marine Park.
