Anthropocene Institute’s maps offer a helpful resource for fishermen and mariners to enhance situational awareness of regulations and conservation measures for long-term marine management.
Anthropocene Institute has a public/private partnership with the NOAA Marine Protected Area Center, that ensures that the most comprehensive and accessible MPA data is available for marine resource managers and the general public. Half of the data in our maps was provided by Federal and State agencies; and another half was derived from laws. The contribution is depicted in this chart
Anthropocene Institute also has a partnership with Navionics to make these maps available for boaters in the water via Navionics extensive family of electronic charting projects.
