This report summarizes the findings of a three-part study. One part of the study updates the findings of a 2012 study on the size and composition of San Diego’s maritime, water, and BlueTech industry group. A second component of the study examines the importance of supply chains and industry clusters. The final component of the study estimates the degree to which economic activity in this industry ripples across the local economy through economic multipliers.
The Ocean Foundation and TMA BlueTech have joined to co-sponsor this white paper calling for a U.S. Apollo-style “Blue Wave Mission,” focused on innovative technology and services to promote sustainable usage of the ocean and freshwater resources.
In this report, the Mission Board on Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters proposes a Mission Starfish 2030: Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030. Inspired by the shape of the starfish, the Mission has five overarching objectives for 2030: (i) Filling the knowledge and emotional gap, (ii) regenerating marine and freshwater ecosystems, (iii) zero pollution, (iv) decarbonising our ocean, and waters (v) revamping governance. These five objectives are mutually supportive and taken together, the Mission Starfish 2030 will enable the restoration of the water cycle as a whole. For each of the five objectives, a set of ambitious, concrete and measurable targets has been defined. They specifically address the actors, activities, tools and systems that all need to be called upon to reach each objective. These targets are considered the indispensable components of a holistic approach to systemic change.
The 2014 “Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) in San Diego & Stakeholder Overview” provides insight to MSP implications for existing and future ocean users and gives a voice to ocean stakeholders.
