Environmental management of offshore oil development and maritime oil transport
In 2001 Oil was discovered in the West African marine and coastal eco system. This ecosystem includes the marine systems of six countries: Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea and Cape Verde and spans 3,500 kms of coast. Among its most striking features are the unique coastal wetlands and the up-welling of deep nutrient-rich ocean water to the surface that support one of the most diverse and economically important fishing zones in the world. The fact that many marine species pass different phases of their life cycles in the waters of the six countries underscores the need to understand and manage the eco-region as a whole.
