Excerpt
Excerpt: EVALUATING THE VAST WEALTH OF U.S. OCEANS AND COASTS America is a nation surrounded by and reliant on the oceans. From the fisherman in Maine, to the homemaker in Oregon, to the businessperson in Miami, and even the farmer in Iowa, every American influences and is influenced by the sea. Our grocery stores are stocked with fish, our docks bustle with waterborne cargo, and millions of tourists visit our coastal communities each year, creating jobs and pumping dollars into our economy. Born of the ocean are clouds that bring life-sustaining rain to our fields and reservoirs, microscopic plankton that generate the oxygen we breathe, energy that fuels our industry and sustains our standard of living, and biological diversity that is unmatched on land. Careful stewardship of our ocean and coastal resources is imperative to conserve and enhance the financial, ecological, and aesthetic benefits we have come to rely upon and enjoy.
