Request for Proposals for Characterization of Recreational Activity

Mar. 12, 2014—The Northeast Regional Ocean Council and the Northeast Regional Planning Body have released a new RFP to develop products characterizing coastal and marine recreational activity in New England.

The scope of this RFP includes other activities, including wildlife viewing (including commercial whale watching), non-motorized boating (kayaking and canoeing), diving, surfing, events such as regattas and sailboat races, fishing derbies, and other recreational activities that occur in the near- and off-shore marine environment in New England.
