      State of the Monument report reveals the benefits of science-based management practices

      This month, NOAA and the co-trustees of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument released the 2020 State of the Monument report, which will support monument managers in future management planning, research priorities, and decision making. It found that most of the habitats within Papahānaumokuākea remain in good condition, owing to the science-based management practices in place to protect them. Lost fishing gear as well as climate change impacts including, coral bleaching, invasive algae growth and intense storms still threaten the ecosystem.

      Following the report’s release, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and hundreds of supporters urged policymakers to keep in place restrictions on commercial fishing within Pacific marine monuments. In its letter to the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council, the Foundation explains that opening up Pacific monuments would undermine the health and resilience of these special places and undermine fishery conservation efforts. In fact, according to a recent study in Nature, the Hawaii longlining fleet’s catch and its catch per unit effort increased since the monuments’ designations.

      From the Blog: A quest to photograph California’s rare and endangered abalone species

      Photo credit: Oriana Poindexter
      Marine scientist and artist Oriana Poindexter took us on a two-part journey to photograph the endangered black and white abalone off of California’s Coast. 

      In part one of the series, The Iridescent Ones: Visualizing California’s Abalone, Oriana goes extreme tidepooling to photograph the endangered black abalone. Black abalone were once found all along the western coastline, from Crescent City, California to Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico, but are now scarce in much of that range. Photographing these masters of camouflage and shy crevice dwellers was no easy task. 

      In part two, Oriana ventures underwater, scuba diving in the coastal waters off San Diego in search of white abalone. Facing intense fishing pressure in the 1970s, the white abalone were the first marine invertebrates to be listed as endangered in 2001.

      The Florida Keys tourism council released this new video with tips on how to recreate responsibly in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

      Recreate Responsibly, Explore Locally

      This month, we blogged over at the Recreate Responsibly Coalition about exploring locally and recreating responsibly around the National Marine Sanctuary System. 

      In the era of COVID-19, planning vacations and connecting with nature is proving to be harder than ever. Many people are dreaming of far-off destinations to find adventure or take a much-needed break from reality. Instead of hopping on a plane, consider the wonders around you! There are 14 national marine sanctuaries and two marine national monuments all around the U.S. that can serve as a long-awaited escape while reducing long-distance travel and limiting the spread and exposure to COVID-19.

      FWC/Marine Fisheries- Notice of Proposed Rule
      Rule No.: 68B-14.0036, 68B-14.0039 
      Purpose: Blueline tilefish primarily occur in federal waters, but are harvested from state waters off southeast Florida. In Atlantic federal waters, recreational harvest of blueline tilefish is managed with a quota, bag limit, and open harvest season to prevent overfishing. However, overfishing occurred in the recent past and the federal recreational quota has been exceeded every year since 2015. When the federal recreational quota is exceeded, the federal waters recreational fishery can be closed in-season, which occurred in 2015. Since harvest from state waters can be significant and counts against the federal quota, the absence of regulations specific to blueline tilefish in Atlantic state waters contributes to these problems.
       
      At its October 2020 meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established a recreational bag limit and recreational open and closed harvest seasons for blueline tilefish in Atlantic state waters to be consistent with recreational regulations in adjacent federal waters. The purpose of this federal consistency action is to help keep harvest below the federal quota, avoid in-season closures in federal waters, and reduce the risk of overfishing. The effects of the federal consistency action are to establish recreational regulations specific to blueline tilefish in Atlantic state waters that are consistent with adjacent federal waters, thereby reducing the likelihood of exceeding the federal recreational quota and causing overfishing, easing compliance with regulations, and eliminating confusion for recreational fishermen.

    • Cruisers Net Unites with United States Power Squadrons (USPS) / America’s Boating Club

      Cruisers Net unites with United States Power Squadrons (USPS) / America’s Boating Club to help maintain and enhance the accuracy of the Cruisers Net marina listings.

      USPS members will regularly survey marinas to provide timely updated data for our current marinas as well as expand our marina listings. All USPS surveys will be based on on-site visits and personal interviews with the marina staff. The surveys will go through an extensive verification and validation process by USPS and Cruisers Net staff before being entered into the Cruisers Net database.

      The first group of marina surveys has already been incorporated into Cruisers Net database and ranges from St. Augustine City Marina in St. Augustine, FL to Myrtle Beach Yacht Club in Myrtle Beach, SC. Updated information from additional marinas will be incorporated on a regular basis as they are surveyed.

      Cruisers Net fuel editor, Kaye Adams, will still phone survey all marinas for their latest fuel prices and availability status each week. This process ensures Cruisers Net has the most accurate and up-to-date fuel information of any resource.

      The United States Power Squadrons DBA America’s Boating Club, is a non-profit educational organization, founded in 1914, whose mission is to improve maritime safety and enjoyability through classes in seamanship, navigation, and other related subjects.
