Pew commission defends oceans report



Several fisheries groups and others have charged that a 4 June report by the Few Oceans Commission presents recommendations for reform of U.S. ocean govenance that are illfounded or unworkable.

However, Christophe Tulou, executive director of the independent commission, defended the report for using the best science available, and for presenting solutions to serious problems facing the oceans.
