The American Littoral Society applauds the submission of the Regional Mid-Atlantic Ocean Action Plan to the National Ocean Council for final review and adoption. This action is the final step before the Action Plan will be considered final and ready for implementation by over 18 federal, state and tribal entities.
Submission of the final Mid-Atlantic Ocean Action Plan (Action Plan) concludes a four-month outreach process that included public review and comment of the draft Action Plan through written comments, public meetings and listening sessions around the region. The final version of the Action Plan submitted to the National Ocean Council incorporates feedback from the public during this summer’s outreach.
"The Mid-Atlantic ocean faces increasing demands on its resources, space and ecology," said Tim Dillingham, Executive Director for the American Littoral Society. "We need a strategy that will protect marine life, as well as the traditional uses and clean water economies on which our coastal communities depend. This Ocean Action Plan can be a tool to reach those goals, and we will be reviewing how the agencies incorporated our feedback into the Ocean Action Plan.”
