Description:
Abstract:
Under the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (also known as Title III of the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972), as amended, the Secretary of Commerce is authorized to designate discrete areas of the marine environment as National Marine Sanctuaries to protect distinctive natural and cultural resources whose protection and beneficial use requires comprehensive planning and management. The National Marine Sanctuary Program is administered by the Sanctuaries and Reserves Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The mission of the National Marine Sanctuary Program is to identify, designate, and manage areas of the marine environment of special national significance due to their conservation, recreational, ecological, historical, research, educational, or aesthetic qualities. The goals of the National Marine Sanctuary Program are to provide enhanced resource protection through conservation and management of the Sanctuaries that complements existing regulatory authorities; to support, promote, and coordinate scientific research on, and monitoring of, the site-specific marine resources of the Sanctuaries; to enhance public awareness, understanding, appreciation, and wise use of the marine environment; and to facilitate, to the extent compatible with the primary objective of resource protection, multiple uses of the National Marine Sanctuaries.

The Act provides authority for comprehensive and coordinated conservation and management of these marine areas. It provides for civil penalties for violations of the Act, or regulations or permits issued under it and for civil suits to recover damages if sanctuary resources are injured or destroyed (Sources: Year of the Ocean Discussion Papers 1998; NOAA Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management).

Parallel Authorities:

33 CFR 324: Permits for Ocean Dumping of Dredged Material.

Purpose:
These georegulations data were developed for illustrative purposes to depict the geographic extent(s) of specific laws and policies. They were derived from various sources for planning purposes only and do not necessarily represent contemporary legal spatial positions or orientation(s). All users should verify the location of any boundary of interest prior to use by contacting the controlling legal authority (i.e. Federal, Commonwealth, or town agency) listed in the metadata for guidance.
