In this update, NOAA describes how MPoS are being managed.
The following topics are currently under discussion.

What are marine protected areas?
Missions and coastal areas are protected by the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
They are protected from being developed and controlled by corporations, as they are in most other areas.
Most marine protected area designation is in the form of a state, which is a federal agency responsible for managing the boundaries of protected areas.
Each state has a different designation, but all states have certain characteristics that must be met to be designated as a marine protected site.
These characteristics include: the size and shape of the land and the surrounding water, the water quality, and the number of animals or fish in the area.
A state may also have a separate definition for an area, but this definition is often limited to certain areas or only applies to certain classes of species.
There are three main categories of Marine Protective Area:State marine protected status: An area is designated as being a state marine protected.
An area may be designated with a separate designation if it meets these requirements.MPS: The designation of a specific site is made with a specific marker and can be made at a location that is accessible to people who live in the designated area.
An MPS is for a specific species, but can be used to designate a larger area, such as a national park, or a group of sites.
Protected marine ecosystems: An ecosystem is an area that meets certain environmental criteria that require protection, such a: a diverse and abundant food source, habitat, and water quality.
The designation of an ecosystem includes the size, shape, and type of land, and how many animals or plants live there.
Protected areas have been a key part of the conservation and restoration of our oceans.
In a recent report, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) highlighted the importance of protecting marine protected zones as a way to restore habitat to the Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, and other areas, and to restore the ecosystem through fisheries and other sustainable fisheries management.

What is a state protected area?
A state marine protection area is a specific, designated location where a specific number of species or other types of marine organisms, including species not normally found in an ecosystem, are protected.
The Marine Protection Area Definition (MPDA) is a document that specifies the types of species, types of habitat, water quality and the other criteria required for protection.
MPAs are important for protecting species, habitats, and ecosystems.
States have adopted several MPAs, which are often called “regional MPAs”.
These MPAs are not permanent, and some MPAs may be renewed.
For example, in Alaska, a state MPAs can be renewed if conditions are met.
MPAs also provide a way for states to create new MPAs and provide additional protections for species and habitats.
Protecting wildlife, fisheries, and coastal environments: Protected areas help conserve species, manage fisheries, manage coastal habitats, restore marine ecosystems, and protect marine life.
A protected area is also a place where a particular species or habitat can be located, where it can be managed, and where it is protected.
State protected areas are not necessarily in the same place, but the same principles apply.
A state or local MPAs protect different species, areas, or habitats.
State protected marine protected habitat is habitat that is located, maintained, and managed by state, local, or tribal agencies, as well as the public.
Federal protected habitat: Federal protected habitat includes habitat, waters, and natural resources located in national parks and national wildlife refuges.
Fisheries: Fisheries, fisheries management, and habitat management are critical elements of fisheries conservation.
Conservation and management of fisheries and fisheries management are often supported by state and local MPIs.
Cities: Cities are areas that have been developed by governments that are part of a regional or national MPAs.
Cities are also areas that are created by municipalities and local governments.
What are MPAs?MPAs are written in an alphabetical order that identifies the areas of protection for species, and then the specific requirements that must have been met in order to designate them as a protected area.MPAs include the following: A list of species and habitat requirements, including the number and size of the species in the protected area, the type of habitat they require, the land area they are located in, and whether they are managed by a municipality or local government.
