The United States has more ocean area under its jurisdiction than any other country. The new Administration, therefore, has every reason to place ocean concerns and opportunities high on its environmental and economic agendas. By reforming national ocean governance, ensuring that changes in energy policy consider ocean impacts, restoring U.S. leadership in marine research, and launching a national ocean health initiative, the new Administration will allow us to better safeguard the marine environment as well as U.S. economic and national security.
