Our Living Oceans 1999 is the fifth edition in a series of recent reviews on the biological status of U.S. living marine resources. Previous reports were released covering the 3-year periods ending in 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1995. These reviews have evolved to a triennial reporting effort to better capture the extended time period that is often required to observe and document changes in the marine environment. The biological status of living marine resources is presented for five large regions of the United States: Northeast, Southeast (including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean), Alaska, Pacific Coast, and the Western Pacific.
