As a member of an interdisciplinary team, Strategic Earth developed an options report to identify a range of possible ways to approach marine protected area planning in the San Francisco Bay. Based on extensive stakeholder assessments and a comprehensive literature review, the report provided background information on the unique setting of the Bay, identified existing Bay projects, and considered lessons learned from previous marine protected area planning processes. Also included were a series of projected budgets and responses to specific questions related to MPAs in the Bay.
