Cross Cutting Issue Name: Boundary Issues  

As a component of the Joint Management Plan Review (JMPR), the National Marine Sanctuary Program (NMSP) assembled a crosscutting internal team to address two boundary issues relating to the Gulf of the Farallones and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuaries. Each issue is briefly characterized at the end of this introduction. The focus of this Team was to address concerns voiced during the public scoping process of the JMPR and to provide guidance and recommendations to the Director of the NMSP on how to resolve the two boundary issues.
