OIL POLLUTION OF THE OCEANS: A TANKER OWNER'S PERSPECTIVE--PROCEEDINGS OF THE 7TH ANNUAL SEA GRANT LECTURE AND SYMPOSIUM

Erling D. Naess, Chairman of Intertanko, which controls about 80 percent of the world's privately owned tanker fleet, headed this year's 7th Annual Sea Grant Lecture and Symposium. Mr. Naess discussed the need for and the possible implementation of international tanker regulations. Nations must agree on uniform standards and techniques if they hope to eliminate tanker oil pollution of the oceans, he said. And the oceans cannot be protected unless nations negotiate mutually beneficial rules. But, one must consider efficient tanker operation. Symposium panelists provided a lively balance to his remarks. Also included are audience questions and comments.
