North Carolina's Two National Seashores among the 21 National Park Units

Being Considered by NOAA's Marine Protected Areas Status

 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National

Marine Protected Areas Center, in cooperation with the Department of the

Interior (DOI) has created a first ever inventory of the nation's marine

protected areas. This unique, comprehensive inventory catalogs and

classifies marine protected areas within US waters. Thirty-two sites,

including twenty-one units of the National Park System and several national

wildlife refuges, have been nominated to join the national system of Marine

Protected Areas (MPAs). Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout National Seashores

are among the national seashores listed in the Federal Register last week.

 

Developed in response to Executive Order 13158 on Marine Protected Areas,

the final framework for the national system was published on November 19,

2008. Comments on the nominations to the national system are due February

22, 2010. For more information, check NOAA website at: www.mpa.gov or

submit comments to: mpa.comments@noaa.gov .

Good job fishtrek,

 

I posted this in the main forum as "mpa for lots of our surf"

 

You missed Cape Cod National Seashore and Fire Island National Seashore as well.

 

You get a pass for that and a thumbs up for your post.

Do MPAs close access to fishing and other recreational use of the resource?

There are many types of Marine Protected Areas in the United States, and most do not prohibit fishing and recreational uses throughout their boundaries. Existing MPAs encompass a wide range of characteristics and have been established for a variety of different purposes. While a few sites exist as no-take marine reserves, the vast majority of MPAs, both in terms of numbers and area, are open for fishing, diving, boating, and other recreational and commercial uses.

 

A few exist as no take,

 

Yeah right,

 

That is the same as SELC/AS saying they dont want to eliminate beach driving.

 

It starts little by little,

 

UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL!

From a thread in the main forum:

 

Has to do with MPA's allowing fishing but being "No Take"

 

View PostJust the first step

 

The method the anti's embrace is "Take little bites"

 

This would just be the first of a few steps

 

Analogy (This one works particularly well for anyone in NJ):

 

1. 15 +/- years ago NJ passed a seatbelt law, but you couldn't be pulled over for it and it only applied to those in the front seats

 

2. A few years later and the summons is double what they said it would be

 

3. It's a few years later and now you can be pulled over for it without having done anything else wrong.

 

4. And now there's a bill that's about to pass in the next few days - passengers in the rear seats will have to wearing seatbelts (I'm not sure who would be getting the summons, driver, passengers or both).

 

Don't take this off track with any crap about how seat belts are a good idea, they are that's not the issue here, only the analogy. The point I'm making is about how the forces that are behind these ideas work - little bites at a time. If NJ had tried to pass the seatbelt legislation in one big bite the way the law is written now, there would have been a huge outcry and it never would have passed. By doing it one little bite at a time they got it all through, every bit and more. - This is exactly the method the anti's use so watch out !

 

Today they say that the MPA's will only be no take and will not impact the sport fisherman, but give it time and it will end up being no trespassing for any use except scientific bunnyhugger reasons.

Don is right - have to be aligned and organized up and down the coast

 

Give these loons an inch and they will end taking a mile

 

If we really wanted to save fisheries we would have the US Navy sink most of the Asian fishing fleets and look long and hard at banning draggers

 

Not against commerical fishing - Asian fleets essentially do what they want without regard and draggers destroy habitat

 

This crap makes me very angry mad.gifmad.gif
