"The author distinguishes between ocean fish farming and ocean ranching. The distinguishing characteristic of ocean ranching is that the released species are unassisted once released into the ocean. Ocean ranching in turn is classified as pure ocean ranching (animals intended to be harvested by the entity that released them) and stock enhancement ocean ranching"--P. [4] of cover.

In June 2009, the Obama Admin. established an Ocean Policy Task Force to develop a national ocean policy. On Sept. 10, 2009, the task force released an Interim Report which includes national ocean policy priorities, a governance structure for interagency coordination, and an implementation strategy. Most congressional activity has focused on specific topics, incl. ocean exploration, ocean and coastal mapping, ocean and coastal integrated observation, ocean acidification research and monitoring, and coastal and estuarine land conservation.

Contains maps of yearly upper ocean temperature anomaly fields at selected standard levels of the world ocean, computed on a one-degree latitude-longitude grid, for the years 1960-1990. The fields used to generate these maps were computed by objective analysis of historical data. Data distribution maps are presented for individual years at selected standard levels. Also, figures showing the results of multi variate analyses of these fields, linear temperature trends occurring in the upper ocean, and difference fields between selected years are presented.
