The book analyses the international conventions, the Australian and New Zealand legislation and the regulatory structures in both countries relating to the protection and preservation of the marine environment from ship pollution. It concentrates on the important aspects of the marine environment and its protection and preservation in the light of the huge tonnages of vital trade goods carried by many merchant ships to and from the Australasian region. This second edition sets out: the sources of pollution of the coastal seas; the UN international conventions on the marine environment; the International Maritime Organization conventions; marine salvage; the complexities of the Australian offshore jurisdiction covering the Commonwealth States; the New Zealand offshore jurisdiction; some of the key aspects of regulatory governance and infrastructure; and the status of the IMO conventions on shipping and the marine environment.
