West Coast Launches Regional Ocean Partnership
The West Coast Ocean Alliance will serve as the regional ocean partnership for the West Coast, building upon the previous efforts of the West Coast Regional Planning Body and West Coast Ocean Partnership. The alliance will work to coordinate tribal, state, and federal co-managers in the region pursuing implementation of common goals for ocean management. They’ll work to support healthy, resilient ocean ecosystems and communities that thrive on ocean resources. The West Coast Ocean Data Portal will become part of this effort.
