Shipping

Current vessel activities in the Arctic can be categorized into four main groups: community re-supply, cargo ships, fishing activity and tourism. The majority of vessel activity, and consequently ship accidents, takes place along the coast (Fig. 14.5). Therefore continental shelves, which are areas of high biodiversity and production and large aggregations of Arctic marine fauna, are most susceptible to impacts from ship traffic. (Arctic Biodiversity Assessment 2013.)
