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.
