Assisting the maritime industry in regulatory compliance

Bryant's Maritime Consulting


This site is intended to familiarize the reader with issues of significance to legislators and regulators and explain how they might impact the maritime community.  Most of the time, new developments are presnted in a straight-forward manner.  Sometimes, though, I will include my own perspective on an issue.  My perspective is just that – my own.  I welcome comment on the various topics presented – whether in support or disagreement.

    logo11 Silence your ships

    In the September 2016 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Silence your ships". In the article, I discuss the steps being taken both at the IMO and in the United States to reduce the volume of noise generated by ships and other maritime activity. This anthropogenic sound increasingly is causing significant disturbances to marine mammals and other aquatic life. Such noise generation also needlessly expends energy.
