MBNMS Proposed Action Plans 6/10/03

Documents on 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.

Please keep 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. 

Note, if you are having trouble dowloading some of the larger documents: A CD-ROM version is also available. Call MBNMS at 831-647-4201.
