Texas A&M University Sea Grant Program


This booklet represents a summary statement of the third Texas A&M University Sea Grant Workshop, "Marine Resources: Leisure Uses." The meeting was one in a continuing series of working sessions designed to find out the views of various user groups concerned with marine resource development in Texas. Similar workshops have been held with industrialists, educators, attorneys and administrators and port and water developers and users. Others are planned for coastal land use, banking and commerce, and fisheries. The statement issued here is one of consensus. It reflects the concern of each participant for a well-managed coastal zone for the state. It should not be assumed that all the ideas were unanimously voiced by all participants or that each individual subscribes to every detail. The workshop was planned and conducted by the Recreation and Parks Department of the College of Agriculture, Texas A&M University. Dr. Clare A. Gunn, professor of tourism and recreation, was responsible for the conduct of this workshop and the compilation of this report. The Sea Grant Program is grateful for his effort in the workshop development. It is the intention of the Texas A&M University Sea Grant Program that this statement may stimulate the growth of marine resources in the state.
