Oil Pollution of the Cape Infanta Coastline

  • P Zoutendyk


Observations on oil pollution over the past 24 years have been made along the Cape Infanta coastline. Although no shipping disasters have occurred in the area, the oil cover of the rocks has increased markedly in places, with signs of affecting the intertidal fauna. It is concluded that the cumulative pollution by oil under present conditions may in time produce results similar to those encountered after large oil spills.
