    Dear colleagues,
      FYI,  the President’s Budget for FY 2009 has just been released and includes  a new Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program. With an initial  funding request of $1.5 million, this program will help NOAA "increase  protection of this vulnerable habitat by mapping locations of deep sea  corals and monitoring fishing and other activities near these areas."
      See  Budget Highlights for NOAA and the National Marine Fisheries Service  at:  http://www.corporateservices.noaa.gov/~nbo/09bluebook_highlights.html
