Overview

Members participating with APNEP’s Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) Action Team pursue collaborative initiatives aligned with the following APNEP Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) actions:

  • Action B2.2: Develop and implement a submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) protection strategy. APNEP will work with its partners in protecting SAV habitats through mapping efforts, examination of permitting requirements, water quality and habitat issues, and education for boaters.
  • Action C3.3: Develop and implement a submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) restoration strategy. In conjunction with strategies to protect SAV (see B2.2), APNEP will work to restore areas capable of supporting SAV. This work will require study of effective restoration techniques, bathymetric mapping, water quality monitoring, and other efforts. APNEP will continue its contributions to the SAV Partnership to develop and promote a SAV restoration strategy.

For a more detailed explanation of how these actions contribute to an ecosystem-based approach, APNEP’s CCMP can be found here.

Since preliminary discussions among its agency partners began in 2001, APNEP has supported a collaboration among partners that aims to promote the conservation of SAV along the entire coast of North Carolina and southeastern Virginia. This partnership has been meeting regularly since 2004 and was formalized through a Memorandum of Agreement in 2006.
