Background information and definitions
Shipping can impact subtidal benthic invertebrates through physical disturbance, introduction of non-native species and pollution. Shipping routes could be diverted, either permanently or temporarily, to reduce the level of impact at one location, and allow for natural recovery. This may potentially benefit subtidal benthic invertebrates through reduced disturbance.
