      Additional Information about the Marine Reserves Environmental
      Review Process:

      NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary Program (NMSP) is considering the
      establishment of a network of marine reserves within the Channel
      Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CINMS or Sanctuary) to maintain
      the natural biological communities, and to protect, and, where
      appropriate, restore and enhance natural habitats, populations, and
      ecological processes. Marine reserves are one of a variety of
      resource management tools used to manage and protect marine
      resources. This action is being considered to complement the State
      of California's recent establishment of a network of marine reserves
      and protected areas within the State waters of the CINMS.

      The NMSP will prepare an environmental impact statement which will
      examine a range of management and regulatory alternatives associated
      with consideration of marine reserves within the Sanctuary. The
      NMSP will conduct three public scoping meetings during the scoping
      period to gather information and other comments from individuals,
      organizations, and government agencies on the scope, types and
      significance of issues related to consideration of marine reserves
      in the Sanctuary.
