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: [email protected] .

All h#ll will break loose in hatteras if another nail is hammered into the Audobon lawsuit coffin. I hope the folks down there know that this is being proposed so they can oppose the designation. It is bad enough as it is there with the Audobon beach access restrictions. I am going to send an email to the OBPA. If fishing is prohibited, I guess there will be enough birders and Subaru folks to rent out all the cottages and support all the local businesses.

As far as I have been able to determine, this nomination only adds these areas to a database of existing MPAs. The "restricted" fishing has already been established under Federal Regulation and the Superintendent's Compendium for each individual park. Gateway National Park Area is now undergoing a review of its Management Plan.

Restrictions eventually lead to prohibitions. Give the envirs and the government support they have an inch, then comes the mile. Especially in hatteras. Do you realize that you cannot drive on the beach in hatteras in the summer anymore?
