Submit Your Comments on the NOAA Proposed Changes to Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) proposes to expand the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS) boundary, update sanctuary-wide regulations, modify and establish new marine zones, update marine zone-specific regulations, and revise the sanctuary's non-regulatory management plan.

DEMA will compile your comments and provide them directly to the NOAA Sanctuary Office to ensure that divers and dive professionals have a voice in seeking conservation of these natural resources while maintaining diver access to them - please send your written comments on the proposed Sanctuary changes directly to DEMA by emailing publicpolicy@dema.org.
