Abstract
  • From July, 1982 to August, 1983 I had the privilege of serving an internship as an oceanographer at the National Marine Fisheries Service Beaufort Laboratory. During the period of my appointment I assisted in a preliminary assessment of the potential fishery impacts of ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) power plants. This report serves as summary account of that internship. This report has been divided into a number of parts. It begins with an introduction to ocean thermal energy conversion and OTEC power system technology. These sections are the basis for a discussion of the reasons for concern over the potential environmental impacts of OTEC operations, which is followed by a brief examination of those provisions of the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Act of 1980 which were intended to protect marine resources from excessive impacts. This section is, in turn, followed by a description of my role in the study, and a discussion of some of the difficulties that I faced during my internship. The report concludes with a description of the methods used and the difficulties faced in the most frustrating and yet most fascinating part of my duties: the locating of data in the literature. Three appendices have also been included. The first is a list of the reports produced as part of the study in which I took part. The second is a copy of the characterization of potential OTEC sites in the Caribbean which I drafted and co-edited. This is followed by a short, in-house report on ciguatera fish poisoning which I authored.
