Did you know:
To provide easy access for our most used facts and figures, the Office for Coastal Management (OCM) developed a series of “coastal fast facts” web pages. You’ll find them at the bottom of the OCM home page.
Current topics include economics, demographics, weather, storms, ports, aquaculture, and marine debris. A hard copy (pdf) version of some of the most popular fast facts is also available online.
The new OCM website also includes a database of more than 200 story snippets, searchable by topic, program, and location, that highlights how coastal management is making a difference.
