Posted on

The National Marine Manufacturers Association recently submitted comments supporting the proposed Wisconsin-Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary.

This proposed sanctuary mirrors successes in supporting recreational opportunities such as boating and fishing at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, according to the NMMA.

The NMMA said the proposed sanctuary would protect the region’s maritime history and 37 known shipwrecks in the area and said it believes the sanctuary would foster recreational boating and tourism.
