The Oceans Act of 2008 charged the Ocean Advisory Commission (OAC) with assisting the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs in developing the ocean management plan by holding public meetings and making recommendations for the proper management and development of the plan. As directed by the Oceans Act, this 17-member commission includes legislators, agency heads, representatives from a commercial fishing organization and an environmental organization, an expert in offshore renewable energy, and representatives from the coastal Regional Planning Agencies. The OAC provides important advice and guidance on reviewing and amending the plan, ongoing implementation, and related ocean management issues.
