Description: This map layer shows the boundaries of the Northeast Canyons and Seamount Marine National Monument. This National Monument was designated on September 15, 2016 by President Obama. The monument includes two areas, the Canyon Unit and the Seamount Unit. The Canyon Unit covers Oceanographer, Gilbert, and Lydonia Canyons. The Seamount Unit covers Bear, Physalia, Retriever, and Mytilus Seamounts. The units cover a total of 4,900 square miles. <br/> <br/> On September 12, 2023, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) jointly released a <a href="" target="_blank">Draft Management Plan and Environmental Assessment</a> for the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument for public review and comment. To view all written comments that were received during the public comment period, visit <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. <br/> <br/> On February 16, 2024, NOAA Fisheries published a <a href="" target="_blank">notice in the Federal Register</a> to implement regulations for the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. This measure defines the boundary coordinates of the Monument area, reflects Presidential Proclamation 10287’s prohibition on commercial fishing within the boundaries of the Monument in the Magnuson-Stevens Act prohibitions at § 600.725, and clarifies that commercial fishermen may transit through the Monument if fishing gear is stowed and not available for immediate use during passage through the Monument. <br/> <br/> View the <a href="" target="_blank">Map Gallery</a> for interactive versions of Figures 12-18 in the Draft Management Plan and Environmental Assessment that are Northeast Ocean Data Portal maps with relevant data on marine life and ocean uses. <br/> <br/> For more information, visit the <a href="" target="_blank">Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument page</a>.
