NOAA outlines California sanctuary protections

Posted on

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released some of the details related to its plans for managing and protecting national marine sanctuaries in California.

The affected areas include Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones and Monterey Bay.

Douros, West Coast regional director for the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, in a statement.
