Zoning the Oceans: Changing the Focus of U.S. Fisheries Management
James N. Sanchirico

Chapter 21 in New Approaches on Energy and the Environment: Policy Adivce for the President



Our nation has one of the most productive and diverse marine environments in the world, but many of these resources are threatened.

Mr. President, this does not have to be the case.

Jim Sanchirico on
Zoning the Oceans

Two commissions recently released reports detailing the causes, tools, and organizational restructuring needed to reverse this trend, both of which discuss the potential role for zoning the oceans.

Sir, I recommend that you issue an executive order directing the secretaries of commerce and interior to launch a major new cross-agency initiative to zone our oceans by 2010, along with providing the necessary funding.

Zoning the oceans would delineate portions of our marine environment for particular uses, just as on land. This is a bold idea that--unlike current approaches to management--can ensure economic growth and biological sustainability.

James N. Sanchirico conducts economic analysis of fishery policy design, specifically the effects of transferable fishing quotas and marine protected areas. This research is based on ecological-economic models and has received numerous awards. He also works on the dynamics between land use and water quality and biodiversity conservation.
