SOME THOUGHTS ON NATIONAL OCEAN POLICY: THE CRITICAL ISSUE

While many believe the U.S. has a perfectly adequate national ocean policy, it is the basic proposition of this Article that, in fact, this is not the case and what passes for national ocean policy is actually a rather uncoordinated grouping of special interests competing for finite resources and policy support, often at the expense of each other. It is a further proposition of this Article that in order for the United States to proceed in a logical and open-ended manner toward full uses of ocean space, it will be necessary for some continuing framework of national ocean policy to be established at the highest levels of Government, in both the executive and legislative branches.
