Ballast water regulations (and their idiosyncrasies) made headlines in 2017, as companies raced to fit the latest technologies. To find out what works, and what still needs more work, we profile the technologies to look out for in 2018.

We learn how monitoring our oceans has improved over the decades, consider the extent to which speeding up or slowing down vessels can protect marine life, lower transport fuel costs and provide a boost to jobs, and find out how some landlocked countries have developed thriving maritime economies.

Finally, we take a closer look at the Nairobi Convention to understand what is being done to protect the seas from dangerous shipwrecks, and explore the main challenges still facing the fishing sector following the introduction of new legislation to improve conditions for workers.
