By virtue of his wide experience of international marine science and marine pollution research, acquired largely through personal participation in international meetings and expert groups on the subject.
Dr. Waldichuk is well qualified for the task given to him. pollution, as far as it is know or understood at this time, Dr. Waldichuk has drawn not only from his own wide knowledge but also from the book entitled "The Health of the Oceans" published in 1976 by the Unesco Press. The main part of the present report, however, describes the actions being taken by the international bodies mainly concerned with the problem. Dr. Waldichuk has updated the report to June 1977.
