"Recognizing that the Cape Cod region’s environment is its economy, the Blue Economy will be the fulcrum that balances our economic and environmental health, creates a new regional identity focused on pride in our water and coastal resources, and supports a more balanced and sustainable year-around economy for its residents.

Through the realization of our vision, driven by the water that surrounds us, steeped in maritime tradition and dedicated to innovation, the Cape Cod region will be a modern, water-based and highly diversified economy. This new focus on blue will connect people to their environment, inspire learning and export our knowledge to the world."
