State of the Bay Report for Mobile Bay National Estuary Program

The mission of the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program is to lead the wise stewardship of water quality and living resources of Mobile Bay and the Tensaw Delta. Established as a part of the Clean Water Act and funded in part by the US Environmental Protection Agency, MBNEP serves as a catalyst for activities of estuary stakeholders, helping to build community based organizational capacity for sound resource management and leveraging commitment and investment to ensure the estuary's sustainability.
