Marine Planning is a regionally-based planning process for analyzing current and anticipated uses of coastal and marine areas. Executive Order 13547 established a National Ocean Policy and created an interagency National Ocean Council tasked with developing actions to address issues challenging our oceans and coastal areas.
In March 2012, the Alliance submitted comments to the National Ocean Council on the DRAFT National Ocean Policy Implementation Plan. In April 2013, the National Ocean Council released the revised National Ocean Policy Implementation Plan.

In August 2013, the National Ocean Council released the Marine Planning Handbook. Click here to find a copy of the Handbook.
