Grants to USA individuals, businesses, municipalities, universities, and others for projects that provide new technologies for monitoring remote marine national monuments. Areas of interest include collection of environmental data sets, and surveillance and monitoring of ships within the monument. Priority will be given to projects utilizing science-based management tools for application to resource managers in order to accomplish the desired goals.
Specifically, funds will be provided to support management objectives of three Pacific Marine National Monuments (MNMs): the Marianas Trench MNM, Rose Atoll MNM, and Pacific Remote Islands MNM. NOAA is seeking proposals that for advance monitoring technologies and techniques in the enforcement, surveillance and/or ecological monitoring fields.
The priority area for this funding opportunity is:
Advanced monitoring technologies – The three marine national monuments designated in 2009 are remote, isolated places. Traditional monitoring mechanisms include vessel based and aerial surveillance, while research is often limited to vessel-based platforms. NOAA Fisheries Monuments Program is soliciting project proposals that examine new ways to monitor these areas. Primary areas of interest include collection of environmental data sets (e.g., cholorphyll, wave height, etc), and surveillance and monitoring of vessel activities within the Monument (e.g., vessel presence, fishing, anchoring, land access).
Activities may be proposed for one or more of the three Pacific Monuments designated in 2009 (Rose, Mariana Trench, or Pacific Remote Islands). The ability to meet permitting/regulatory criteria (such as MMPA, ESA, EFH, NEPA, and other Monument-related permits) will be a factor in the selection of a project. NOAA Fisheries will work with the selected project to ensure it meets relevant criteria.
