This paper presents the results of a preliminary assessment of appropriate treatment arrangements and methods for the elimination of viable marine organisms from ballast water. Appropriate ship-based, port-based and land-based treatment options are identified. A cost comparison shows that land or port-based treatment should be more economic and effective then ship-board treatment.
