Event Details

Making smart, balanced choices through comprehensive ocean planning will help ocean industries thrive. By listening to the needs of mariners and other ocean users, better choices can be made about how to maintain important ocean uses. More comprehensive data means greater efficiency, maximized resources, a thriving economy and a healthy ocean.

Smart planning for marine resources will require coordination. Shipping and transportation can coexist with other ocean industries, but mariners, scientists and regulators, must be central participants in the process for everyone to benefit.

In this FREE educational discussion /presentation Susan Little Olcott, CMSP Stakeholder and Outreach Manager for Ocean Conservancy will provide background information on the National Ocean Policy. The policy lays out a framework for coastal and ocean planning around the country. Susan’s presentation will outline the details of the policy as well as where New England currently is in the planning process as well as ways that interested members of the maritime community can participate as the region’s plan takes shape.

Susan Little Olcott is a marine biologist and the current Manager of CMSP Stakeholder Outreach at Ocean Conservancy, a national non-profit organization that educates and empowers citizens to take action on behalf of the ocean. Susan formerly conducted research in the offshore lobster fishery in New England and received her M.S. at the University of New Hampshire working with Dr. Win Watson.
