Marine and coastal environment


This website is definitely very interesting and I would like to add marine and coastal pollution to the topics being debated. I am an experienced merchant ship captain and have audited over 100 seagoing ships on environmental compliance. Now we carry out marine EIA studies. 

Perhaps most of you know, the ballast water water carried by ships in tens of thousands of tons from one continent to other is known to cause major irreversible disruption to local environment where it is discharged. Merchant shipping is now firming up effective measures to treat this water before it is discharged.  Brgds/Sekhar
