Environmental hazards from mineral exploitation of seabed resources


Such environmental hazards include the restricted fishing activities and local re-distribution of fish populations which result from offshore structures such as platforms, wellheads, and pipelines. In addition, the disposal of cuttings and losses of drilling mud could taint fish feeding as well as blanket the fauna at the bottom of the sea.
