Abstract
    Five decades after the John F. Kennedy administration imposed an embargo on Cuba, scientists working in a shared environment are snarled in red tape that impedes cross-border research on fisheries, sea mammals, and oil exploration. Both the United States and Cuba stand to gain from scientific exchange, according to Daniel Whittle of the Environmental Defense Fund, who sees indications that both sides are opening up to "people-to-people" meetings. He notes that "a shared environment means shared risks"—and an opportunity to work together to avoid them.
