Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary Management Plan

NOAA released the final management plan for Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary today.  Based on years of scientific study and developed with extensive public input, the new management plan focuses on key issues affecting the sanctuary, including ecosystem alteration, wildlife disturbance, vessel traffic and its potential threat to marine mammals, water quality and invasive species.  The plan will guide the sanctuary’s resource protection and conservation efforts over the next five years.

The management plan is posted on the sanctuary’s website at http://stellwagen.noaa.gov.
