DNREC’s Delaware Coastal Programs will host the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) forum on scientific data that will be used to develop an Ocean Action Plan (OAP) for the region.

The forum will be held 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., January 29, at the Hyatt Place in Dewey Beach.

Many important activities take place off the coast of Delaware. We need to ensure there is enough space for today’s important activities such as maritime transportation, fishing, beach nourishment projects, national security needs and recreation, as well as space for future activities such as renewable energy – all while keeping our ocean healthy,” said Sarah W. Cooksey, administrator of Delaware Coastal Programs.  

Delaware is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO).

Established in 2009 by the Governors of Delaware, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and Virginia, MARCO provides a forum for the coastal Mid-Atlantic states to collaborate on shared regional priorities related to marine habitats, renewable offshore energy, climate change adaptation and ocean water quality.

MARCO has supported three projects that will help guide the decisions and actions for the Ocean Action Plan (OAP). The projects and data to be presented include Marine Ecological Data (MDAT), Human Use Data (HUDs) and the Regional Ocean Assessment (ROA).
