Title: ●Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary: Establishment of Temporary Special Use Area for Coral Nursery 
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is issuing a final temporary rule establishing a special use area which will prohibit all entry except for restoration activities, continuous transit without interruption, and for law enforcement purposes into a 0.07 square mile area approximately five miles southeast of the community of Tavernier, on the island of Key Largo, within federal waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. This temporary rule is necessary to prevent or minimize destruction of, loss of, or injury to sanctuary resources, specifically to facilitate restoration activities to improve or repair living habitats through protecting coral nursery stock at this site from potential impacts caused by anchor damage and/or fishing gear. This temporary special area will expire within 60 days unless it is extended an additional 60 days.
