    "Fiscal year 2007 marked the seventh year since the inception of the Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP). The CRCP is administered by NOAA Headquarters and includes other NOAA Line Offices, the Atlantic and the western Pacific regions. This program is integrated with other federal agencies, state and local governments, territories, and Commonwealths. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) has been part of this process since 2001 and has implemented a number of projects in the South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean regions with support from the CRCP. In February 2004, the SEFSC conducted an external program review for its coral reef program. This review provided valuable comments and recommendations which have helped to improve the design, performance and results of these projects. In September 2007, the CRCP conducted an external program review of the entire CRCP. The Panel Report was released in November 2007. The CRCP is currently developing a road map for moving forward with the CRCP, taking into consideration the recommendations of the external panel review. Twenty-nine projects were funded by the CRCP in fiscal year 2007 (FY2007). Twenty-four of these projects were on-going projects, and five were new projects. This annual accomplishments report provides information on the activities that were undertaken, results and products produced, and summaries of issues related to implementation of the projects. The accomplishments are presented by CRCP theme category and by project"--Introduction.
