The Northwest Atlantic Marine Ecoregional Assessment could not have been successfully completed without the active engagement and hard work of many dedicated people. The help from marine practitioners both inside The Nature Conservancy and across state and federal governments, academia, industry and other non-governmental organizations has resulted in a transparent baseline of scientific information that can be used to develop strategies that will help sustain the Northwest Atlantic’s ecosystems and ecological service.
