Visiting Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary


On October 15, 2012 modified and new regulations for the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa became effective. The regulatory changes resulted from the sanctuary’s management plan review. The sanctuary’s regulations are codified within the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Part 922, subpart J. They describe the sanctuary boundary, key terms, prohibited activities, management and enforcement, and sanctuary permit procedures and criteria. Some regulations apply throughout the entire sanctuary, while other regulations apply to specific areas within the sanctuary.
