Monitoring habitats of the Gulf of Maine

The Habitat Monitoring Sub-committee is developing
a regional strategy for monitoring coastal and marine habitats and is
developing regional monitoring plans for specific habitat types.

The Habitat Monitoring Subcommittee has adopted a tiered approach to regional monitoring of critical habitats. The Framework for Regional Habitat Monitoring (PDF, 249 KB) describes this approach and identifies potential indicators that function at different scales within salt marsh, seagrass, and subtidal soft-bottom habitats.
