Californian Ballast Water Fees Reduced

January 1st 2000 saw the introduction of mandatory ballast water fees for all vessels entering Californian ports.

Since its introduction, pressure from ship owners and operators

, including INTERTANKO representatives, has seen a positive move by the State in reducing the fees from $600 to $400. The new fees are to be introduced from April 1st 2000.
