Abstract
    This study generated base line data on Maine's 4th, 8th and 11th grade students' knowledge of marine science and natural resource principles in relation to the Gulf of Maine. A representative sample of public school students (n=226) was interviewed on marine science, natural resource and decision making concepts and principles. Student knowledge was classified according to correct concepts, missing concepts and misconceptions. Similarities and differences between grade levels were analyzed and compared to results of the Maine Assessment of Educational Progress in Science(1984). The results of this research have implications for the development of more comprehensive and effective curricula for educating students and teachers about marine science and resources.
