This report provides an overview of South Carolina’s ocean economy based on available data; expands upon information provided by NOAA to examine other market and non-market economic benefits derived from coastal and ocean resources; identifies ocean economy sectors for potential future growth; and discusses how natural resource health provides a foundation for economic activities along South Carolina’s coast.
The resources highlighted in the document are ones unique to living on the Coast of South Carolina. Many people moving here from inland states may not be aware of the Evacuation Routes and Zones, how to prepare for Hurricanes, who to contact when they need debris cleared after a natural disaster and/or if their county participates in the Community Rating System. Serving as a host for links to state, county and municipal websites, this resource document points its users toward their local resources that can help familiarize with potential effects and recovery from extreme weather events and natural disasters.
