This report is the result of a three-year, multi-state project that fills significant ecological data gaps on bird, marine mammal, and sea turtle distributions and movements. The goal of this project, one of the largest of its kind ever conducted, was to improve the understanding of species composition and use of the mid-Atlantic marine environment in order to inform sustainable offshore development in the mid-Atlantic United States, from Delaware to Virginia.
