The report stresses and issues recommendations for immediate reform of U.S. laws and policies to restore oceanic wildlife and ecosystems and preserve the ecological, economic, and social benefits the oceans provide.
Census of Marine Life (CoML)
Coordinated by the Consortium for Oceanographic Research and Education, CoML is a decade-long, international research program assessing and explaining the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine organisms throughout the world’s oceans. Through field studies and other projects, ranging from analyzing historical documents to modeling future ecosystems, CoML will enable scientists to compare what once lived in the oceans to what lives there now, and to project what will live there in the future.
