    2016 Report to Congress, Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program
  • Description:
    "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration s (NOAA s) Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program (Program) was established under the authority of Section 408 of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA), as reauthorized in 2007. This MSA-required biennial report to Congress and the public summarizes the steps taken by NOAA to identify, monitor, and protect deep-sea coral areas, including the Program s research activities and results. The Program consults with the nation s eight Regional Fishery Management Councils and collaborates on research with other federal agencies, international partners, and non-governmental and academic scientists. The Program collaborates with other NOAA programs and offices, such as National Marine Sanctuaries, Ocean Exploration and Research, Fisheries Science Centers, Fisheries Regional Offices, National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, and National Centers for Environmental Information. These programs and offices support exploration, research, and management activities critical to understanding and managing deep-sea corals and other ocean resources. The Program actively works to leverage their expertise. This report describes the 2014 and 2015 research activities partially or fully funded by the Program to meet NOAA s mandate to identify, study, and monitor deep-sea coral areas. The report is supplemented by details of these activities available at https://deepseacoraldata.noaa.gov/. The report also briefly describes progress during this period in MSA-related management actions that contribute to protecting deep-sea coral areas"--About this report.
