NOAA Fisheries is hosting a press call today to discuss the restoration plan. The plan funds 18 projects at an approximate cost of $226 million to help restore fish, sea turtles, marine mammals and deep-sea coral habitat injured by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
This represents the largest dedication of Natural Resource Damage Assessment funds to restore these oceanic marine resources in the Gulf to date.
To join the press call please see the information below.
