Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0309051371, Hardcover)

Marine debris is a serious environmental problem. To do its part, the United States has agreed to abide by the international treaty for garbage control at sea, known as MARPOL 73/78 Annex V. "Clean Ships, Clean Ports, Clean Oceans" explores the challenge of translating Annex V into workable laws and regulations for all kinds of ships and boats, from cruise ships to fishing crafts and recreational boats. The volume examines how existing resources can be leveraged into a comprehensive strategy for compliance, including integrated waste management systems and effective enforcement. "Clean Ships, Clean Ports, Clean Oceans" describes both progress toward and obstacles to Annex V compliance. The book covers: how shipborne garbage originates and what happens to garbage discharged into the seas; effects of discharge on human health, wildlife safety, and aesthetics; and differences in perspective among military, industrial, and recreational seafarers and shoreside facilities. "Clean Ships, Clean Ports, Clean Oceans" will be important to marine policymakers, port administrators, ship operations officers, maritime engineers, and marine ecologists.
