Mission Statement
SAGA actively encourages everyone on the North American continent to promote the discovery, protection, preservation, recording, and research of all underwater shipwrecks within the limits of its territorial seas and the EEZ, including partially submerged shipwrecks within shallow-water littoral zones with an emphasis on the history, culture, and the golden age of sail. SAGA believes that historical shipwrecks contribute abundantly to the inheritance of past knowledge and enriches the heritage of present and future generations of all nations. SAGA encourages shipwreck archaeology through public dissemination of the latest discoveries of shipwrecks, information associated with such discoveries, and educational programs in shipwreck archaeology.
