“It is both hard to believe that NAMEPA is already five years old, and equally difficult to remember a time when it was not around to be the potent force in marine environment protection that it has become”, observed Mr. Maitland.  “In such a short time, the industry has joined together in NAMEPA to “Save our Seas”, and produced remarkable educational products, alliances, activities and industry gatherings”.
