Excerpt
Executive Summary: More than thirty years ago, the Stratton Commission identified growing population pressures on the coasts as a major reason for increased federal government attention to managing the resources of the coasts, oceans and Great Lakes. Socio-economic changes have continued to affect the nation?s oceans and coasts over the three decades since the Stratton Commission report, but in much more complex ways than simple population growth alone. More people live on and near the coasts, but it is population growth away from the coast that may be the greatest cause for concern. Population growth near the coast is being outstripped by even faster employment growth, and in industries which appear clean but whose cumulative effects on the environment are significant. The ocean has always been an important part of the economic life of the nation, but this too is undergoing dramatic change. Economic activity associated with the ocean contributed more than $200 billion to the U.S. economy in 2000, but employment in such traditional marine industries as fishing and marine transportation is declining, while employment in tourism and recreation industries is exploding. Some industries, such as ocean minerals and maritime transportation are producing more with fewer employees, while others such as commercial fishing are declining in both output and employment.
