dc.description.abstractIn most parts of the world, recreational boating activities are confined to sheltered near-shore coastal waters. Increased per capita leisure time and rising disposable incomes have kept growth rates of boat registrations at levels of 4% annually in most developed countries, including Australia. In many areas, this has led to increasing levels of congestion at popular anchor sites and launch facilities and to greater chances of producing significant impacts. This chapter examines two principal types of impacts associated with small recreational and tourist vessels and highlights current management strategies to mitigate adverse effects on the environment. Where possible, technical information and simplified models, rather than quantitative field data, were used to provide some estimates about pollution loads that can be emitted at crowded mooring sites.en_US
