Abstract:

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) of American Samoa, including National Parks, National Marine Sanctuaries, National Wildlife Refuges, ecological reserves, and Territorial Seashore Parks. Compiled from multiple sources, including the National Park Service (NPS), National Marine Sanctuaries (NMS), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA). For use in planning purposes only, not for use in litigation.

Purpose:

PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

Credit:

The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).
