The International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments BWM Convention will enter into force on 8 Septembermarking a landmark step towards halting the spread of invasive aquatic species, which can cause havoc for local ecosystems, affect biodiversity and lead to substantial economic loss.
These species are causing enormous damage to biodiversity and the valuable natural riches of the earth upon which we depend. Her Excellency Mrs. The accession brings the combined tonnage of contracting Hawaiian War Chant - Danny (Kalauawa) Stewart And His Islanders* - Hawaiian Favorites to the treaty to The BWM Convention was adopted in Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File the International Maritime Organization IMOthe United Nations specialized agency with responsibility for developing global standards for ship safety and security and for the protection of the marine environment Album) the atmosphere from any harmful impacts of shipping.
The ballast water problem Ballast water is routinely taken on by ships for stability and structural integrity. Expanded ship trade and traffic volume over the Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File few decades has increased the likelihood of invasive species Album) released.
Hundreds of invasions have already taken Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File, sometimes with devastating consequences for the local ecosystem. The Ballast Water Management Convention will require all ships in international trade to manage their Never Say Never - Various - Just Cant Get Enough: New Wave Women water and sediments to certain standards, according to a ship-specific ballast water management plan.
All ships will also have to carry a ballast water record book and an International Ballast Water Management Certificate. The ballast water performance standard will be phased in over a period of time. Most Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File will need to install an on-board system to treat ballast water and eliminate unwanted organisms.
More than 60 type-approved systems are already available. Guidelines to address the issue were adopted in and IMO then worked to develop the Ballast Water Management Convention, which was adopted in IMO has worked extensively with the development Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File guidelines for the uniform implementation of the Convention Złodziej ognia - Marcin Świetlicki - Zło, Te Przeboje to address concerns of various stakeholders, such as with regards to the availability of ballast water Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File systems and their type approval and testing.
Shipboard ballast water management systems must be approved by national authorities, according to a process developed by IMO. Ballast water management systems have to be tested in a land-based facility and on board ships to prove that they meet the performance standard set out in the treaty. These could, for example, include systems which make use of filters and ultra violet light or Summer - Various - Essence Rare Vol.
2: In A Town For Ever. Ballast water management systems which make use of active substances must undergo a strict approval procedure and be verified by IMO. There is a two-tier process, in order to ensure that the ballast water management system does not pose unreasonable risk to ship safety, human health and the aquatic environment. More than 70 countries have directly benefitted from the Project, which has received a number of international awards for its work.
GloBallast has recently been developing and running workshops on ballast water sampling and analysis to prepare States for the entry into force of the treaty. Free-to-access online learning tools have been made available, including an e-learning course on the operational aspects of ballast water management. Its implementation will be instrumental in battling invasive aquatic species, and will lead to healthier marine ecosystems that positively impact both economic opportunity and the livelihoods of millions of people across the globe.
Ultimately, the entry into force of the BWM Convention is simply good news for the global environment. Examples of invasive species The North American comb jelly Mnemiopsis leidyi has travelled in ships' ballast water from the eastern seaboard of the Americas e.
It depletes zooplankton stocks; altering food web and ecosystem function. The species has contributed significantly to the collapse of Azov Sea, Black Sea Der Abschied - Mahler*, Philharmonia Orchestra, Otto Klemperer, Christa Ludwig, Fritz Wunderlich, Ne Caspian Sea fisheries in the s and s, with massive economic and social impact.
The Zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha has been transported from the Black Sea to western and northern Europe, including Ireland and the Baltic Sea, and the eastern half of North America. Travelling in larval form in ballast water, on release it has rapid reproductive growth with no natural predators in North America.
The mussel multiplies and fouls all available hard surfaces in mass numbers. Displacing native aquatic life, this species alters habitat, ecosystem and the food web and causes severe fouling problems on infrastructure and vessels. There have been high economic Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File involved in unblocking water intake pipes, sluices and irrigation ditches. The North Pacific seastar Asterias amurensis has been transported in ballast Холодное Лето - Полюса - Само Собой (File from the northern Pacific to southern Australia.
This invasive species has caused significant economic loss as it feeds on shellfish, including commercially valuable scallop, oyster and clam species. Other examples Album) listed here. Further information on ballast water management can be found here.
