Environmental impact in the sea and marine pollution
An estimated 80 percent of marine pollution originates on land
In 2007 EROCIPS produced its final report. This document, which had been produced by sixteen project partners from the UK, Spain, France and Portugal, contained information and guidance on a number of possible marine pollution scenarios and their associated pollution risks. It also contained a number of suggested clean up strategies, environmental protocols to determine the impact of incidents, information to managers and response-decision makers, training for workers and volunteers and critically, recommendations on regional modelling systems to help predict the movement of the pollution – be it oil or some other compound (see)

The Marine Institute at Oranmore Co. Galway will be hosting a major conference on 7th September this year to discuss the creation of co-ordinated marine pollution response strategies across Europe.

Different marine regions are subjected to various and specific impact factors. The combination of these factors under specific conditions ultimately defines the ecological situation in a given area. In particular, we want to stress the alarming features of the ecological situation in many Russian marine areas. The pollution levels here very often exceed the maximum permissible limits. This fact was one of the reasons why during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992, Russia was rated as one of the most polluted countries of the world [Rybalski, Zaslavski, 1993].
Take Action Against Ocean Pollution.
It is significant that at the regional and local levels, the intensity of anthropogenic press on the marine environment generally increases. The number and diversity of pollution components is growing as well. The contaminants with global distribution are combined here with hundreds and thousands of ingredients of local and regional distribution. Most of these substances are wastes and discharges from different local industries and activities. Often they are not included in the sphere of chemical-analytical control and monitoring. We usually get to know about their existence in the water environment from various signs of environmental trouble. These include the decline of abundance and various pathologies among fish and other organisms, poisoning or diseases among people, degradation of coastal ecosystems, fouled beaches, unusual algae blooms, and so forth.
