To all concerned:

Comments regarding the Tortugas Ecological Reserve are due to
the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary by December 17. Of
particular interest from the scientific community are comments
concerning specific habitats and areas to include or exclude,
functional oceanography,  reserve criteria (both general and as they may
apply to the Dry Tortugas area and permitting issues. However, comments
regarding any aspect of the Tortugas 2000 project are welcomed. These
comments are part of the offical scoping process and will be part of the
public record. Comments should be submitted to Ben Haskell by Dec., 17:
