Abstract:

Marina del Rey - the world's largest man-made recreational boating harbor - also holds primacy in pollution. Marina del Rey is home port to more than 6,100 vessels in wet slips and another 850 in dry storage. There are also 5,100 transient vessels which use the Marina's guest boat docks each year, two major boat repair yards and a marine fuel dock. The pollution sources are indicated and the struggle to control them are described.
