  • Description:
    Fiscal Year 1974 was a year of continued progress toward the longterm objective of improving our understanding of the ocean environment and the effects of man's activities thereon. The range of activities which impact the oceans and over which Congress expressed its concern by approving the research provisions of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act of 1972 is broad. In the language of the legislation, it includes ocean pollution, overfishing, and other man-induced changes of ocean ecosystems. This last category encompasses the effects on the marine environment by the construction and operation of deepwater ports, offshore nuclear powerplants, offshore oil and gas platforms, and by ocean mining operations. This chapter provides a brief summary of marine environmental research efforts and findings during the previous fiscal year.
