JMPR Issue Prioritization

NMSP Selection of Priority Issues

The following document presents the National Marine Sanctuary Program’s (NMSP’s) proposed priority cross-cutting and site-specific resource management issues to be addressed in the Joint Management Plan Review (JMPR). Staff developed these proposed priority issues after thorough analysis of recommendations from the four Sanctuary Advisory Council (SAC) Issue Prioritization Workshops and from internal review by individual sanctuaries and national program staff.

Although the document best reflects those priority issues the NMSP plans to address in the JMPR, the final list of issues is subject to change. JMPR staff are in the process of determining how these issues can be addressed given existing staff and resources. Until this analysis is complete, the program cannot say with certainty that all the issues can be fully addressed in the management plan review. The analysis may reveal the need to modify or defer some of these proposed priority issues based on budgetary or staffing constraints.

The program is asking the SACs to review this document, and at the next scheduled SAC meeting, provide additional input on refining these priority issues. Input and advice from the SACs and public will help us determine which of these issues will be fully addressed over the next five years, and those issues whose final resolution may be more limited or can be deferred. This advice will help the JMPR staff to develop a draft work plan that details precisely how the issues will be addressed.

Sanctuary Advisory Council Prioritization Workshops

The following document summarizes the results from four separate prioritization workshops held with members of the Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones, and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Councils in mid- to late-April. The purpose of these workshops was for SAC members to prioritize, as a group, the cross-cutting and site-specific marine resource management issues and problems identified during the public scoping process.

The document is divided up into sections that correspond to the four SAC prioritization workshops: Cross-Cutting, Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones, and Monterey Bay. Each section contains the scoring by the individual SAC work groups and the subsequent binning by Sanctuary staff.
