October's General Meeting
Hear from the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary at the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum
Wednesday, October 9th at 11:30
Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary is one of 13 marine sanctuaries in the United States. Located off Washington’s outer coast, the sanctuary works with coastal communities to ensure healthy fisheries and shellfish populations by providing vital research and education on ocean issues.
Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary includes 3,188 square miles of marine waters off the rugged Olympic Peninsula coastline. The sanctuary extends 25 to 50 miles seaward, covering much of the continental shelf and several major submarine canyons. The sanctuary protects a productive upwelling zone – home to marine mammals and seabirds. Along its shores are thriving kelp and intertidal communities, teeming with fishes and other sea life. In the darkness of the seafloor, scattered communities of deep sea coral and sponges form habitats for fish and other important marine wildlife.
