Chapter Summary

In Douglas Millar Johnstons book The Theory and History of Ocean Boundary Making, he included a chapter entitled Trends in Ocean Zoning. Johnston can bee seen as having been prescient in detecting the trend regarding not only what he considered appropriately named zoning, but a corollary trend related to the problematic use of the phrase. This chapter integrates Johnstons observations into the current discussion on ocean zoning as part of an effort to illustrate the merit of employing a set of appropriate terms and constructs designed to dispel a second layer of confusion regarding the appropriate use of zoning within a governing authoritys administration of ocean space. To do so, a brief explanation of two layers of confusion are set forth followed by a series of observations related to how the dissipation of confusion at the primary level has been followed by confusion at a secondary level.
