Abstract This document describes the federally-mandated review and update of the Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary Management Plan, which includes a proposed expansion of the sanctuary to as many as five additional locations, as well as a suite of sanctuary-wide and location-specific regulations designed to enhance protection of sanctuary resources while limiting adverse impacts to the public.
