Second set of recommendations of the MPA Federal Advisory Committee (FAC) to the Secretaries of Commerce and the Interior, representing its work from April 2006 to October 2007. Recommendations address the relationship between MPAs and ecosystem approaches to ocean management being developed by NOAA and other agencies; questions posed by the National MPA Center regarding the process for developing a National System of MPAs; a process for filtering over 1,600 existing Marine Managed Areas in the U.S. to a set of eligible MPAs; an ideal management plan for MPAs; why the managers of MPAs or MPA systems would want to join the National System of MPAs; guidance regarding cooperative regional management of MPAs; and related issues. The Marine Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee was established in 2003 under Executive Order 13158, and comprises 30 federally appointed marine stakeholders from a broad variety of ocean interests.
