MPA Seashore and Vacation Closures

Thanks Diver for info. Please provide follow ups as they happen. First a fishing reg. or state license. Now they want to close areas to beach access fishing. Why fish anymore and why take a vacation to a MPA areas. If your only allowed to sit on the beach and not fish, just go to Atlantic City. I hope the tackle shops and recreational businesses in these areas wake up before it is too late. A guy goes to war, makes it back and gets discharged. Now he goes to the beach and it costs him to fish or he can't fish at all!!!!! Fishing use to be a relaxing pleasure!!!!! Go ahead send me your dirty comments!!!!!!!! I'm out of here.

I could not figure out the reports, but i know you have been a diligent follower of these very bad ideas know as MPA's.

They act like freakin Gods creating life. No trespass forever. Wake up fisherman, the gov IS the enemy.

List of National System Marine Protected Areas - National Park Service Federal Sites

Site Name: Gateway National Recreation Area

Management Agency: National Park Service

Management Plan Type: Site-Specific Management Plan

MPA Category: Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation Area


Primary Conservation Focus: Natural Heritage

Natural Heritage: MPAs or zones established and managed wholly or in part to sustain, conserve, restore, and understand the protected area’s natural biodiversity, populations, communities, habitats, and ecosystems; the ecological and physical processes upon which they depend; and, the ecological services, human uses and values they provide to this and future generations.

Examples: Natural Heritage MPAs include most national marine sanctuaries, national parks, national wildlife refuges, and many state MPAs.



Level of Protection: Zoned Multiple Use

Zoned Multiple-Use: MPAs that allow some extractive activities throughout the entire site, but that use marine zoning to allocate specific uses to compatible places or times in order to reduce user conflicts and adverse impacts.

Examples: Zoned multiple-use MPAs are increasingly common in U.S. waters, including some marine sanctuaries, national parks, national wildlife refuges, and state MPAs.



Permanence: Permanent

Permanent: MPAs or zones whose legal authorities provide some level of protection to the site in perpetuity for future generations, unless reversed by unanticipated future legislation or regulatory actions.

Examples: Permanent MPAs include most national marine sanctuaries and all national parks.



Protection Focus: Year-round

Year-Round: MPAs or zones that provide constant protection to the site throughout the year.

Examples: Year-round MPAs include all marine sanctuaries, national parks, refuges, monuments, and some fisheries sites.



Protection Focus: Ecosystem

Ecosystem: MPAs or zones whose legal authorities and management measures are intended to protect all of the components and processes of the ecosystem within its boundaries.

Examples: Ecosystem-scale MPAs include most marine sanctuaries, national parks and national monuments.



Fishing Restriction: Commercial and Recreational Fishing Restricted

Commercial Fishing Restricted : MPAs or zones place some type of restriction on commercial fishing, which might vary throughout the MPA according to different zones or areas. Recreational fishing may be unrestricted.

Example: Rotating MPAs, which are still rare in the U.S. They include some dynamic fisheries closures created for the purpose of serially recovering a suite of localized population to harvestable levels.

Recreational Fishing Restricted : MPAs or zones place some type of restriction on recreational fishing, which might vary throughout the MPA according to different zones or areas. Commercial fishing may be unrestricted.

Example: Seasonal MPAs, including some fisheries and endangered species closures around sensitive habitats.

For the moment, all that this is doing is adding the Gateway National Park Area to a list (inventory) of national MPAs. The "MPA" already exists. The restrictions that are in place now qualify the Park areas for inclusion in the national inventory. For now that is all this nomination does.

The review of the Management Plan is what may change the restrictions.

"The national system does not bring state, territorial or local sites under federal authority, nor does it restrict or change the management of any MPA."
