  • MA Ocean Mngmnt. Task Force 2003-04
  • Possibility of legislation
  • State agency coordination
  • MOPF initiative
mopf goal
MOPF Goal

Support development & implementation of integrated multi-use ocean management plan for MA that:

  • Integrates management across uses, sectors, resources
  • Based on EBM principles & appropriate spatial/temporal scales
  • Reflects stakeholder input, gains support of key groups
  • Establishes process to adapt to changing conditions, new info
  • Supports sustainable marine industries and ecosystem stewardship more effectively than current management system
mopf role
MOPF Role
  • Partnership as consistent presence to drive EBM

mopf science plan1
MOPF Science Plan
  • Tools & mechanisms to enhance application of science to ocean management
    • Enhance communication & coordination between science and management communities
    • Develop tools to assess & communicate about tradeoffs among uses, sectors

key observations from a work in progress
Key Observations from a Work in Progress
  • Transparent process & defining MOPF role:
    • Enlists participation vs. fueling skepticism
    • “Standing” – independent partnership vs. governmental
  • Developing & integrating science
    • Coordination critical to maximize collaboration & avoid redundancy
    • Realism – what can MOPF accomplish in 5 years
