The Management Plan (MP) for Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary focus's on key issues and opportunities affecting the sanctuary. The plan contains information about the sanctuary’s environment, priority management issues and actions proposed to address them, regulations, staffing and administration, operational and programmatic costs, and performance measures. It addresses important sanctuary programs such as public awareness and understanding, conservation science, water quality, emergency response and enforcement, and maritime heritage. The plan, released in November 2008, represents a major revision of the site’s original management plan and is the result of several years of study, planning, and extensive public input.
