The Ocean Economy
Audience: Adults
Description: The ocean economy, like agriculture, forestry and mining, for example, has major importance to the U.S. economy. We need to know just how important, in order to inform ocean-related investment practices and policy initiatives. Understanding the role of the oceans in the U.S. economy enables us to: make informed judgments about the infrastructure needed to support these activities, and understand what is at risk from ecological changes such as sea level rise. One crucial investment is protecting oceans from overuse.
