Science goals to address data gaps
Protection goals to maintain quality and function
Specific restoration targets based on phased approach
Audience: Resource managers, academics, non-profits, etc.
The benefits people derive, either directly or indirectly, from ecosystem functions (e.g., harvest, sense of place, recreation, visual aesthetics, nutrient cycling, primary production)
Ecosystem services identified for the SF Bay Subtidal Goals Project include only those that are not directly extractive or destructive of habitat.
