Action Plans 6/10/03
this web site mirror a report to the Monterey Bay National Marine
Sanctuary Advisory Council which is comprised of the draft action
plans developed by the working groups and internal teams. This report
only includes Action Plans developed by MBNMS working groups and
those developed by the Cross Cutting working groups. It does not
include action plans developed to address site- specific issues
for the Cordell Bank or Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuaries.
MBNMS and NMSP staff have produced this report to provide the opportunity
for the MBNMS SAC and members of the public to review and comment
on the working group recommendations relevant to the Monterey Bay
National Marine Sanctuary prior to preparation of the Draft Management
Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement. See the introduction
for more information about this report.
in mind that these proposed action plans may not look exactly like
the final draft action plans developed by working groups andinternal
teams. The draft action plans were reformatted for consistency and
readability across all the issues. In particular, individual strategies
and activities were made to be more proactive. Every attempt was
made NOT to alter the original intent of strategies and activities.
