National marine sanctuary advisory councils are community-based advisory groups that provide advice and recommendations to the superintendents of the sanctuary sites on issues like management, science, community engagement, and stewardship. Members of the advisory council represent a broad cross-section of communities, industries, and stakeholders interested in and affected by the marine sanctuary.
Members represent conservation, education, research, communities, fishing, and diving; as well as jurisdictional partners from local, regional, state, and federal agencies.
