Abstract

In these times of financial restraint, marine sciences enjoy a very special position within the range of scientific activities. Rather than suffering from reduced funding, they are expanding at a considerable rate. In Australia this is partly due to neglect in the past, partly a result of increased importance of the waters around this continent to industrial activity of various sorts. The development is, of course, welcomed by marine scientists. At the same time, thsoe of us who consider their social responsibilities realise that accepting the extra money and retiring to the old desk or small and remote field station is just not good enough. As Field (1982) pointed out recently, "a pleae can be made for more team projects involving several disciplines and a spectrum of organisations, with frequent reviews of direction and aims"
