Abstract:

Though it is the smallest of all the five military services, the U.S. Coast Guard has a lot to do. It has 11 different statutory missions. Something as mundane as fishery enforcement could easily get overlooked. Most people are unaware how such a matter, if unchecked, can threaten the environment, as well as national security. The U.S. Coast Guard is strategically positioned to provide such essential U.S. presence and leadership. To illustrate, this research draws upon the elusive Pacific Tuna, which as fish are totally unaware of their significance in future geo-political-economic matters that could tip the hull-of-state.
