Human - Culture & Heritage

Cultural Use includes traditional and current use of specific ocean, coastal, and shoreline areas by tribal and indigenous communities, based on the area’s inherent cultural, spiritual, or aesthetic values and significance; it excludes activities that can be classified in other “Ocean Use” categories.

Maritime heritage includes not only physical resources such as historic shipwrecks and prehistoric archaeological sites, but also archival documents, oral histories, and the stories of indigenous cultures that have lived and used the ocean for centuries.
