Ocean Pollution provides a unique look at the effects of estuarine and coastal pollution on resource species. One of the primary objectives of the book is to provide an accurate assessment of the state of the inshore marine environment and its inhabitants. Coastal habitat degradation is discussed, and principal findings from modeling and other research efforts are analyzed and evaluated.

The research undertaken thus far extends beyond the effects of pollution on resource population size to disease effects in fish and humans, effects on aquaculture, and effects on productive systems of the oceans. These far-reaching consequences - and potential consequences - of ocean pollution are expertly presented, and suggestions for mitigation are made. Realistic scenarios about the future effects of ocean pollution are outlined, providing a powerful tool for researchers and regulators.

  • Summarizes present status of knowledge about effects of ocean pollution on living resources and humans, based on review of available technical literature
  • Describes ocean pollution from the perspective of effects on living resources
  • Includes extensive sections on pollution-associated diseases of marine fish and shellfish, and on attempts to quantify their effects on population size
  • Contains a full section on the relationships between ocean pollution and human health, focusing on human diseases derived from contaminated seafood
  • Concludes with scenarios about future directions and effects of ocean pollution, with suggestions for mitigation
