The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the lead federal agency mandated to conserve and manage the nation’s marine resources, including deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems. As our understanding of these resources has grown, so has the need to target research and management actions. The NOAA Strategic Plan for Deep-Sea Coral and Sponge Ecosystems: Research, Management, and International Cooperation represents a concerted effort to identify exploration, research, management, and international cooperation activities that provide the information needed to implement appropriate management measures to protect and conserve deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems.
This document addresses an identified milestone in NOAA’s five-year Research Plan for 2005-2009 to develop a NOAA-wide research plan for deep-sea corals; and a commitment by NOAA to develop a national strategy for research and conservation of deep-sea corals and sponges in response to a petition from Oceana to protect deep-sea corals and sponges.
