NOAA selects Great Bay as a research reserve.


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) designated 4,471 acres of land and tidal waters in and around Great Bay, N.H., as the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in October 1989. The new Reserve encompasses all water areas of Great Bay, including 48 miles of shoreline, the bay's tidal waters and mudflats, and the Winnicut, Squamscott, and Lamphrey river channels, plus five key upland areas around the estuary. This is the nation's eighteenth estuarine research reserve.

The National Estuarine Research Reserve System, administered by NOAA's Marine and Estuarine Management Division, includes unique sites representative of biogeographical regions of the country. A state-Federal matching-fund program, establishment of the Reserve makes New Hampshire eligible for financial support from NOAA for estuarine research and development of educational programs for the Great Bay area, and to support management staff. NOAA and New Hampshire also supported acquisition of key land areas to establish the reserve.
