"News & Issues" piece on a proposal to create the world's first underwater protected area off the coast of Maine, which will be presented to President Clinton and selected members of Congress this week by Martin Willison, a conservation biologist and ecologist at Dalhousie University of Nova Scotia in Halifax. The Gulf of Maine International Ocean Wilderness would run 10 miles deep along each side of the Hague Line, the U.S./Canadian border, to form a protected area that starts 12 miles offshore and extends 20 miles wide to the outer reaches of Georges Bank, 200 miles from the mainland.
