Abstract

The New York State Legislature created the New York Ocean and Great Lakes Ecosystem Conservation Council (www.nyoglecc.org) to allow greater coordination among nine key State agencies and to lay a foundation for implementing an Ecosystem‐based Management (EBM) approach for the long‐term sustainability of these resources. The Council urges bold action now to ensure that our aquatic resources, and the services they provide, are available for future generations. This Report recommends an implementation strategy that accounts for the impacts of a diverse set of human activities by developing comprehensive approaches and integrated partnerships.
