This publication provides a very useful guide to identify the various problems that will affect fisheries and aquaculture enterprises in the event of an oil spill. This will be useful to spill responders and managers with responsibilities for protecting public health and those in the fisheries sector as well as consumers concerned about the safety and quality of seafood.


At its forty-first session, the Marine Environment Protection Committee tasked the OPRC Working Group to develop a guidance document for fisheries management during and after an oil spill incident. Dr. Tosh Moller, Technical Team Manager of the International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation Ltd. (ITOPF), prepared the draft guidance document and submitted it at MEPC 42.
