DE Boaters Asked to Help Map Recreational Boating Activity in Mid-Atlantic Ocean

May 18, 2013 -- 5:50am

Delaware recreational boaters have been asked to play a prominent role in helping to map future recreational Atlantic Ocean use by participating in the 2013 Mid-Atlantic VBoater Survey.

The survey is being conducted via the mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean to gain valuable and viable information about recreational boating activities throughout the region.

Over 5,000 invitations went out to boaters in Delaware earlier this week asking them to take part in the survey; information collected through the survey will be translated into maps and incorporated into MARCO’s online mapping tool to support ocean planning efforts in the region, including Delaware’s Atlantic waters.
