On Friday, President Joe Biden signed a proclamation restoring protections for Northeast Canyons and Seamounts National Monument, while maintaining access for recreational fishing. NMMA and members of the outdoor recreation community attended the White House signing event for their engagement on and support of the president's order.

The National Monument is composed of two units, the Canyons Unit and the Seamounts Unit, each showcasing unique geological features that anchor vulnerable ecological communities threatened by varied uses, climate change, and related impacts. President Biden's proclamation reestablishes protections initiated during the Obama administration, which NMMA and its coalition partners helped to secure.

Under the order, commercial fishing in the National Monument will be prohibited, with fishing for red crab and American lobster to be phased out by September 15, 2023. Consistent with President Obama's previous proclamation, recreational fishing in the National Monument may continue.
