POLICY AND PLANNING FOR MARINE AFFAIRS

Despite increased acitivity toward development of national ocean policy, and concern for coordination and management of ocean affairs, it has not been possible to formalize a focus for marine affairs on a national basis. The number, diversity, and ambiguity of national goals in the oceans is a prime reason. NACOA proposes reducing the uncertainty about goals and approaches by developing a comprehensive national marine plan during the next year, and suggests that this could be best carried out by an ad hoc task force under joint Legislative-Executive guidance.
