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.
The Mid-Atlantic Committee on the Ocean was established in June 2019 by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean. The Committee was formed to enhance the vitality of the region's ocean ecosystem and economy through increased communication and collaboration.
Members include representatives from the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia; and from federal government agencies: the Shinnecock Indian Nation; and the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council.
