    • On March 21, 2009, by SeaChange - I support this bill because it directly addresses the issue of ocean acidification. Changing ocean chemistry will harm our economy--billions of dollars are generated by the seafood industry--and radically change the ocean ecosystem for millions of years. Part of the bill is the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act (FOARAM). Details include requiring the Joint Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology of the National Science and Technology Council to develop a strategic plan for federal ocean acidification research and monitoring that provides for an assessment of ocean acidification impacts on marine organisms and ecosystems and the development of adaptation and mitigation strategies to conserve marine organisms and ecosystems.
