In June 2009, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean was organized. The Council operates under an agreement signed by the governors of the participating states on June 4, 2009. The Governors of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia committed their states to work together towards common goals and priorities related to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Council works to regionally coodinate the protection of important habitats and sensitive, unique offshore areas, and improve the Mid-Atlantic's coastal water quality through infrastructure investment. Through a regional approach, the Council also supports the sustainable development of renewable energy offshore, and prepares for the impact of climate change.

Each state designates a representative to serve on the Management Board.
