The many benefits of a healthy ocean need to be managed with sustainable land use practices that reduce the flow of sediments, nutrients, and pathogens into coastal waters; catch limits and gear restrictions for fisheries are implemented; and non-extraction zones are established to maximize the well-being of selected marine habitats and to allow them to provide valuable ecosystem services.
