Oceans and Coasts

Learn how we are protecting New York's oceans and coasts for people and nature.

Our coasts, bays and harbors support critical fisheries, underpin commercial and recreational economies, and are an important part of the culture and quality of life of millions of New Yorkers. We're working to restore our coastal waters so that fish, shellfish and plants, as well as the human communities that depend on them, thrive.
