There are only a few days left in the public comment period for the
Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary's management plan review
process. The comment period ends on Friday, November 14, 2008.
Please consider submitting comments similar to:
portion of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary within the
Strait of Juan De Fuca is the only portion of the Sanctuary that is
easily accessible by scuba divers. This is one of the few places in all
of Washington State that scuba divers have a significant possibility of
encountering Tiger Rockfish, China Rockfish, Canary Rockfish and other
long-lived rockfish species while diving.
Please manage this
portion of the Sanctuary from a "Watchable Wildlife" perspective so
that scuba divers from around the state, nation and world have a place
within Washington where these long-lived rockfish species can be seen
