The North Carolina Marine Fisheries, Environmental Management, and Coastal Resources Commissions unanimously adopted the North Carolina Coastal Habitat Protection Plan in December 2004. The document provides information on the habitats’ distribution and abundance, ecological functions and importance to fish production, status and trends, threats to the habitats, and includes recommendations to address threats. The Coastal Habitat Protection Plan is revised every five years to reflect changes in the status of habitat protection in North Carolina. The 2016 plan is currently being amended.

2021 Coastal Habitat Protection Plan Amendment – Underway

The 2021 draft is currently under development. Drafts and meeting materials presented to the CHPP Steering Committee can be found in the Public Meeting Notices.
