    Default Praising ballast regulations

    Empirical evidence supports ballast-water regulation as the primary cause of declining non-native species in the Great Lakes.

    What can I but enumerate old themes,
    First that sea-rider Oisin led by the nose
    Through three enchanted islands, allegorical dreams,
    Vain gaiety, vain battle, vain repose,
    Themes of the embittered heart, or so it seems.

    A pretty meaningless study.We've known for 100+ years what the outcome was going to be by not insisting on sound ballast laws. The embarrassing and frustrating thing is that it took a bunch of beurocrats 80+ years to finally act with common sense and get the SOP in practise. Failing to act has already destroyed and/or irreversibly damaged every freshwater ecosystem in Canada. Sure would have been nice to have avoided zebra and quaggas, gobies, spiny water flea, fish hook flea, etc., etc.,etc.
