Report of the ICES Advisory Committee on Marine Pollution, 1980
1. The Advisory Committee on Marine Pollution has been established by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea with the task to formulate on behalf of the Council scientific advice on marine pollution and its effects on living resources to Member Governments and to regulatory Commissions. It is a firm procedure within the Council that reports of other subsidiary bodies must pass the Advisory Committee on Marine Pollution.
2. The Advisory Committee on Marine Pollution consists of a number of scientists acting - when they meet as a committee - in their personal capacity as scientists, responsible only to the Council. The membership of the Committee is such that it covers a wide range of expertise related to studies of marine pollution. The members are not national representatives. The present membership of the Committee is found on page 1.
3. In the present report, the Advisory Committee on Marine Pollution has prepared one overall report in anticipation that most of the material, even when prepared specifically for one Commission, will be of interest to all three regional Commissions. Thus, information both of a general nature as well as in response to specific requests is contained herein.
