Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary

Monitoring and SIMon

Comprehensive, long-term monitoring is a fundamental element of resource management and protection. The Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary monitors ecosystem resources through SIMoN, the Sanctuary Integrated Monitoring Network.

SIMoN is an integrated, long-term program that takes an ecosystem approach to identify and understand changes in the sanctuary. It provides resource managers with the information needed for effective decision-making and integrates ongoing efforts at the over 30 regional marine research institutions.
