• The NOAA is discussing potentially designing a new national marine sanctuary in Hudson Canyon off New York and New Jersey coast.
  • This sanctuary would help protect the area’s rich marine wildlife and their habitats, promote sustainable economic activities and create new opportunities for scientific research.
  • “Hudson Canyon could serve as a sentinel site for NOAA to monitor the impacts of climate change on submarine canyons and other deep-sea benthic habitats, which are vulnerable to the effects of ocean acidification and oxygen depletion”, said Nicole LeBoeuf, the director of NOAA’s National Ocean Service.
