The purpose of this paper is to present a system analysis for the evaluation and interpretation of information on coastal zone management. We understand by system analysis the consideration of a complex made by related parts, and not merely a totally of parts, where the significance of one thing depends on its relationship with the others. Based on this criteria of interconnections between phenomena, we assume, we are going to give the coastal zone a treatment of a system and in this way impose a correlative statement to the information related to this area. This system approach for the information stage of management can be of great help in the decision-making process about special allocation of resources and uses.
