SEFSC Coral Reef Program, FY 2014 project accomplishments report
Filetype[PDF-1.59 MB]

  • Description:
    "The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) is a matrix program operating across four NOAA line offices: National Ocean Service (NOS), National Marine Fisheries Service, National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service, and Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and is administered by NOS. The program supports conservation of coral reef regions of the United States, has an international component, and is integrated with other federal agencies, states, territories and commonwealths, and local governments. The program has been operating under the still-in-use strategic guidance of the CRCP's 2010-2015 'goals and objectives'. The Southeast Fisheries Science Center has been a leader in coral reef conservation science since 1978. Congress passed the Coral Reef Conservation Act in 2000 and the SEFSC dovetailed its management-relevant coral reef science with the fledgling NOAA CRCP. SEFSC maintains a strong coral reef science program and continues to deliver high-caliber, peer-reviewed science in support of coral reef conservation and management and other National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) mandates to conserve the nation's fisheries, essential fish habitat, and protected species. Recent activities that have shaped the course of SEFSC's coral reef science program include the reauthorization of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (2006), which has drawn attention to data deficiencies for coral reef fisheries; the listing of 7 Atlantic corals (2 in 2006, 5 in 2014) as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA); and the advent of the CRCP's National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) in 2013. NMFS plays a critical regulatory role to effect change on coral reefs"--Introduction. [doi:10.7289/V5X63JXD (http://dx.doi.org/10.7289/V5X63JXD)]
