Joint Initiative Letter to the Senate Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard on the National Ocean Policy

In December, 2017 the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative submitted a letter to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard. In the letter, the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative urged Congress to demonstrate leadership by ensuring that the principles of stewardship, multiple-use management, best-available science, adaptive management, coordination, participatory governance, and government efficiency are enshrined in U.S. ocean policy, as the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy intended.
