The Monterey Bay Management Plan (MP) is supported by a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), which analyzes the potential impacts from modified and new regulations in the sanctuary, as well as impacts from a range of regulatory alternatives. Proposed changes to regulations are intended to clarify and strengthen protections for marine habitats, sensitive species, water quality, and submerged cultural and historic resources.
