Ballast Water a Big Problem at Our Harbors and Coasts

"In a report presented to the Pew Oceans Commission earlier this year, Dr. James Carlton of Williams College stated that as many as 7,000 species are transported around the world each day via ballast water. Carlton reported that two million gallons of ballast water arrive in the U.S. each day." (Excerpt from Environmental News Service's article, "Ameriscan: December 18, 2001")
