Dr. Dominique Richard, Chair of the Tomales Bay Working Group and a representative of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, describes the recommendations for mooring on the Tomales Bay.
Dr. Richards lists the participants in the Working Group, how decisions get made, what are the considerations. Protecting the habitat-rich Sea Grass beds is a primary consideration. Different mooring systems were tested and Dr. Richards illustrates the best ones for this bay.
The plan defined by the group will be published in December of 2010.
