ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) - A plan to better manage facets of the Northeast’s ocean and coast will be the subject of a hearing in Ellsworth, Maine.

The hearing about the Northeast Regional Ocean Plan is scheduled for Monday night at Ellsworth Public Library. The ocean plan is an outgrowth of the National Ocean Policy established by presidential executive order in 2010.

The plan deals with many aspects of ocean planning, including marine life and habitat and commercial and recreational fishing. It also discusses national security.

There will be more public hearings about the ocean plan. The next is scheduled for Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on June 27, to be followed by Narragansett, Rhode Island, on June 29 and Portland, Maine, on June 30.

The public comment deadline is July 25.
