Ballast water is essential for ship stability, as it compensates for changes in displacement as cargoes are loaded or discharged. It also helps control trim, list & stability as well as minimising stresses on the ship’s structure. However, over the last 25 years, environmental issues have taken an increasingly high profile. The conveying of organisms across the world and depositing them in regions where they are unwanted has been an unwelcome consequence of ballast water discharge.
