The strength of ecosystem-based management is that, if fully implemented, the approach has the potential to protect large marine ecosystems. Its weakness is that creating the perfect statute that includes all elements is nearly impossible due to differing politics, opinions, and perspectives. The next steps in this research are analyzing certain types of current projects, including ocean acidification and liquid naturalized gas, happening along the Oregon coast and determining if and how ecosystem-based management can be implemented.
