Clean Ships, Clean Ports, C lean Oceans : Controlling Garbage and Plastic Wastes at Sea. Washington, D.C. : National Academies Press, 1995. Pp (2),iii-xxi,(3),1-355,(5). Tables, diagrams and a few b&w photos in the text. 8vo, photo-illustrated paper-covered boards, lettered in white. '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 procedures and controls for all kinds of ships andboats, from cruise ships to fishing crafts [sic] and recreational boats. T he volume examines how existing resources can be leveraged into a comprehensive strategy for compliance, including integrated waste management systemsand effective enforcement. " - from rear cover.
