Jesse Cancelmo, a diver, dive master, and boat owner/operator, has often visited the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. Here he tells about the key move that the International Maritime Organization made in 2001, by designating the Sanctuary as the world's first no-anchor zone, a marking that appears on all the electronic chart plotters widely used for navigation. This has been a critical step in protecting the corals and other features that are found at the Sanctuary.
