As most years go, this one has been relatively good for the oceans in congress. In addition to defeating the #1 enemy of the oceans (California Representative Richard Pombo) last week congress reauthorized the major fishery bill (Magnuson-Stevens Act) and blocked attempts to reverse the national moratorium on new offshore oil and gas drilling. The folks at Ocean Champions have a good summary of the victories.
