The literature and the science are affirmed: the ocean provides both tangible and intangible qualities for our lives -- indeed it is an immersion that we cannot live without.
We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depended on it. Because they do.
The tools to rein in overfishing and rebuild healthy populations have been there all along -- in the form of science-based catch limits required by the nation's top fishing law, the Magnuson-Stevens Act.
The Bering Sea is known to scientists and conservationists as one of the most remarkable places on Earth. But as of this week, the Bering Sea is remarkable for another reason -- it's the impetus for a an amazing breakthrough in the way we work to protect our oceans.

One reason you don't want to have politicians mucking around in the nuts and bolts of science is that they often have a shaky grasp of the science at best.
'I can teach a person the skills necessary to cross an ocean alone, but I can't teach the mentality a person needs to sail alone across an ocean. If you don't learn to control fear, fear will control you. Exploration is the physical expression of intellectual passion.'
The demand for shark fins is what drives almost all shark deaths. Some species may have declined by as much as 97-99 percent in the last 35 years. In other words, as few as one out of 100 may be left of some species.
