OCEANS 2012’s theme, Harnessing the Power of the Ocean, has as its foundation a conceptual National Ocean Enterprise and its seven societal benefits as identified by the National Ocean Partnership Program’s legislation in 1999, followed by President’s Bush’s Ocean Action Plan and President Obama’s Ocean Science  Policy. The seven societal benefits are:

  • Mitigating the effects of natural hazards
  • Improving national and homeland security
  • Reducing public health risks
  • Protecting and restoring healthy coastal marine ecosystems
