  • Description:
    A Report on the Activities of the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program: Years 12 to 15. The National Sea Grant Pro gram and the University of Hawaii Sea Grant Program were initiated in 1968 in an era of commitment to wise use and management of marine resources. The Stratton Commission report, Our Nation and the Sea, provided a set of national goals and a framework for action pro grams to accomplish these goals. The state of Hawaii responded with a parallel examination of its marine concerns and opportunities. It then set forth its goals and recommendations in Hawaii and the Sea. By 1972, the national situation had changed. The executive branch's interest in the oceans was on the ebb and many of the new programs were-​faltering. Thus, the 1972-76 period saw the development and management of the nation's ocean resources relegated to a relatively low priority level by the federal administration.​ Due to strong congressional interest and sup port, however, Sea Grant continued to grow at a modest rate during this period. By 1979, the Nation again appeared to be moving towards a commitment to a viable national ocean program. The Fishery Conservation and Management .Act of 1976 had extended the nation's fisheries jurisdiction out to 200 miles. Developments in international law of the sea negotiations and a westward shift of trade had focused new attention on the Pacific rim and Pacific island nations. A new report of the National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere indicated the importance of the ocean to the national economy and international strength. Successful testing of the Mini-​OTEC (ocean thermal energy conversion) concept made ocean energy and ancillary use of the cold deep ocean water major topics and ancillary use of the cold deep ocean water major topics of interest. A significant role was projected for deep ocean manganese resources in meeting future metal needs. The second decade for the nation's Sea Grant programs opened on a hopeful note. Congressional interest in the programs was high and there was reason to expect continued favor able treatment in the future.
