The Blueways Conservation Decision Support Tool offers a wide range of information about ocean resources and management. The focused apps and extensive spatial layers available are valuable tools for enhancing biodiversity, ecosystem-based management, and healthy human activity in the ocean. These resources may serve to support decision-making by marine planners, resource managers, commercial and recreational fishermen, and many other industries using the ocean.
