AAAS survey: 80 percent of adults say we're hurting oceans

id they feel their personal actions do affect the health of oceans and coastal regions.
  • Nearly two-thirds (60 percent) said they would eat less of certain kinds of fish if it would help to protect natural resources.
  • Nearly three-fourths (72 percent) believe that the oceans should be protected in a global way, through international agreements.
  • 47 percent would support government regulations restricting the use of the seashore.
  • 46 percent would support local efforts to reduce business and economic development of coasts.

    The survey, conducted by Porter Novelli, was completed by mail in November 2003, involving 2,400 adults, ages 18 and older. Those answering questions were members of Synovate's consumer mail panel.

    The town hall meeting will be facilitated by Public Agenda, a non-partisan citizen engagement organization. The meeting will consist of both small group sessions and larger discussions among a cross-section of the public, policymakers, experts and stakeholders with a special interest in the issues at hand.
