Sanctuary Advisory Council Final Recommendation Reports

The Sanctuary Advisory Council (council) working groups have developed management recommendations to address priority issues identified during a 90-day public scoping period that was held in summer of 2010. These recommendations do not reflect the endorsement of any individuals or agencies but are a result of a process by the working groups which synthesized multiple sources of information and collectively developed and produced these reports. Working group reports were presented to the full council for their review and approval at the January 17&18, 2012 meeting. The council voted to forward all recommendation reports as shown below to sanctuary management. The recommendations do not reflect the view of the sanctuary, the State of Hawai'i, or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
