RE:  Federal register notice calling for nominations for a U.S. Federal
Advisory Committee on marine protected areas.

On May 26, 2000, President Clinton signed Executive Order #13158 on
marine protected areas (MPAs) which, among other things, directs the
Secretary of Commerce to form a Federal Advisory Committee to "seek the
expert advice and recommendations on non-Federal scients, resource
managers, and other interested persons and organizations".  The Advisory
Committee is to provide input to the Secretary of Commerce and the
Secretary of the Interior on implementing portions of the Executive
Order, specifically on strategies and priorities for developing a
national system of MPAs.

A Federal Register notice calling for nominations for the Marine
Protected Area Advisory Committee was posted August 18, 2000 (Fed Reg
Vol 65, No. 161, pg 50503, I.D.081500CM).  The  deadline for nominations
is October 2, 2000. The Federal Register notice and the MPA Executive
Order are available
via the web site

Please distribute this information as broadly as possible.  For further
information on the Federal Advisory Committee or the Executive Order
please contact me or Anne Marie Goldsmith (phone: 202-482-2160; email:
anne.marie.goldsmith at  Thank you.
