Document Description
The Tomales Bay Vessel Management Plan (TBVMP) is the result of a long-term multi-agency effort to streamline and coordinate vessel management activities for the benefit of the public. The TBVMP aims to improve water quality, protect wildlife and habitat, protect public health and ensure recreational opportunities in Tomales Bay. It also implements the mandates and regulations of both GFNMS and CSLC. It represents extensive input from the boating community and other local stakeholders, and addresses numerous issues including vessel sewage discharge, impacts from moorings, derelict or deserted vessels, introduction of invasive species, disturbance of wildlife, and discharges of oil, fuel, and vessel maintenance products. The TBVMP provides recommendations to achieve the stated goals. The plan does not establish any new legal authorities; none of the proposed actions will alter existing authorities with regard to management of resources or regulation of activities within Tomales Bay.
