NCCOS Staff Member Advises Fishery Management Council on Coral Conservation Issues

On May 7-8, 2013, NCCOS participated in meetings with the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council’s Coral Advisory Panel in Charleston, SC.  Discussions and recommendations were made to the Council on a proposal to list up to 82 reef-building coral species under the Endangered Species Act; coral nursery restoration work; and review of an amendment to the fishery management plan for coral, coral reefs, and live/hardbottom habitats to conserve deep-sea corals.
