It was long thought that the marine environment was not amenable to planning. Property rights, the core of the terrestrial planning system, were virtually non-existent in the marine environment, jurisdictions were vague, and the whole maritime area appeared as a single homogeneous mass of unstable waters without boundaries. The dominant and traditional maritime industries, fishing and shipping, had managed to coexist in relative peace for hundreds of years without formal planning processes to guide them.
