Ocean Frontiers – A New Era in Ocean Stewardship

Ocean Frontiers.

“Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship”, a documentary about marine spatial planning, was just premiered at the Living on the Edge Coastal Communities Conference.

The documentary showcases the processes and successes realized by multi-stakeholder engagement and ecosystem-based management in the development of marine spatial management plans for Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and Massachusetts Bay, coastal Oregon, the Florida Keys, and the Gulf of Mexico.

One noteworthy thread that developed through many of the storylines was that to protect their waters, people realized they needed to look to their lands.  Ocean management planning reached well up into the watersheds in order to resolve conflicting uses – from the Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve up to the coastal mountain streams of Oregon, from the fishing grounds of the Mississippi Delta up to the cornfields of Iowa.

Ocean Frontiers is definitely worth seeing.  Check here for screening information.
