  • Program Areas:

    • Aquaculture

    • Coastal & Marine resources

    • Coral Reef Conservation

    • Ecosystem Observations

    • Ecosystem Research

    • Enforcement

    • Fisheries Management

    • Habitat

    • Protected Species

Outline of theme presentations

Outline of Theme Presentations

  • Aquaculture (AQC):Foster and manage environmentally responsible and sustainable marine aquaculture for food production and stock enhancement. Michael Rubino

  • Coastal & Marine Resources (CMRP): Protects, restores, and manages coastal and marine habitats in U.S. coastal states and territories, maintains or improves the quality of these ecosystems and the resources that depend on them, manages coastal land uses, reduces the vulnerability of lives and property to coastal hazards, and educates the public on actions and decisions that impact coastal and ocean resources. Included programs are the Coastal Zone Management Program, National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS), National Marine Sanctuary Program (NMSP), Marine Protected Area Center (MPA), Coastal Services Center, Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) and the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP). Tim Goodspeed

Outline of theme presentations1

Outline of Theme Presentations

  • Coral Reef Conservation (CRCP):Supports the effective management and sound science to preserve, sustain, and restore valuable coral reef ecosystems. Kacky Andrews

  • Ecosystems Observations (EOP): Provide trusted scientific information to foster healthy marine ecosystems for current and future generations. Capabilities include: Fisheries Monitoring and Assessment; Protected Species Monitoring and Assessment; Ecosystems Monitoring, Assessments and Forecasting; Economic and Sociocultural Monitoring and Assessments; and Data Management, Technology Transfer, Education, and Outreach. Ned Cyr

  • Ecosystems Research (ERP): Conducts applied research and development to provide scientific information, tools, and forecasts for implementing and evaluating ecosystems management. Leon Cammen

Outline of Theme Presentations

  • Enforcement (ENF):Federal law enforcement agency charged with gaining compliance with federal marine conservation management laws and regulations that protect our nation’s living marine resources. Dale Jones

  • Fisheries Management (FMP):Charged with maintaining fisheries at levels that will support sustainable fisheries, their related ecosystems and the communities that depend on them. Galen Tromble

  • Habitat (HAB):Protects, restores and promotes stewardship of coastal and marine habitats that are essential to the nation’s marine life. Pat Montanio

  • Protected Species (PSP): Stop the decline of protected spp. Populations to reduce the risk of extinction. Achieved through planning, regulation, partnerships, direct action, and outreach and education. Phil Williams
