Salvaging Solutions to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels Webinar Series

Salvaging Solutions to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels.

Welcome to the NOAA Marine Debris Program’s webinar series, Salvaging Solutions to Abandoned and Derelict Vessels!

Salvaging Solutions is a nine-episode webinar series featuring experts on topics related to abandoned and derelict vessels (ADVs). The webinar speakers are specialists from federal, state, and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, universities, and industry, and they discussed topics about communications, funding, policy, and successes and challenges under blue skies and storm conditions. The goal of the series was to share perspectives from across the country on common issues arising from abandoned and derelict vessels, in hopes to help communities better deal with them.
