The IMO releases a monthly awareness bulletin on its Maritime Knowledge Centre (MKC). The aim of the MKC Current Awareness Bulletin (CAB) is to provide a monthly digest of news and publications focusing on subjects and themes related to the work of IMO. Each CAB presents headlines from the previous month and includes articles from the mainstream media.
ICOMIA scans the documents for articles that relate to the superyacht and recreational boating sectors. It found two articles in the January edition of the bulletin relating to superyacht emissions and also the role that recreational craft has in bringing invasive species into different marine environments, links to the articles are below:
Superyacht sales surge prompts fresh calls for curbs on their emissions – https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/jan/29/superyacht-sales-sur…
Recreational boats routinely transfer organisms and promote marine bioinvasions – https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10530-021-02699-x
