This report was prepared for the Oregon legislature pursuant to HB 3620, which was passed during the 2003 session of the Oregon legislature to address management of ballast water discharged from ships. The bill removed sediment from the definition of ballast water, allowed discharge of treated ballast water, created a task force on ballast water management, and required this report. Includes List of Acronyms, charts, graphs and maps.
