Hershman, M. J. (n.d.). Building Capacity for Ocean Management : Recent Developments in U. S. West Coast States. Retrieved from

Introduction: In a recent paper (Hershman 1996) this author summarized the ocean management initiatives of ten United States coastal states. These states were considered ?activist? because, to varying degrees, they had taken steps to advance state policy, institutions, and management over the use of the ocean areas adjoining the state. The paper concluded that there was a trend toward increased state-level participation in ocean management within the United States, and that this trend was likely to continue because the state?s role in these issues had become institutionalized. States are active in the national Coastal Zone Management (CZM) program, the National Sanctuary program and in regional bodies dealing with fisheries and pollution control. I concluded that as new ocean issues arise they are likely to be resolved through new policies and institutions that increase state responsibilities and powers. The purpose of this paper is to report recent developments in the West Coast states of California, Oregon and Hawaii to determine how their role in ocean affairs has progressed since 1996.
