The California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) commissioned this background document, Coastal and Marine Planning and California, to support its 2011 strategic planning initiative. The information in this document is intended to inform the OPC’s four strategic plan focal areas – climate change, sustainable fisheries, improved management across the land sea interface, and preparing for industrial uses of the ocean.1 For each of these focal areas, improving decision-making about human uses that affect our coast and ocean resources is essential to securing for California’s people and the living marine resources, the healthy ocean on which they rely.
