Judy, in the original Marpol V, you could, depending on distance offshore
, and not in a special area, dump paper, wood, metal, glass etc over the side. Now you pretty much limited to food
waste only, and that is further limited depending on if its has been ground down, but if your in a special area, which includes GoM and the Caribbean
area, and food
waste is not ground, then it has to be kept on board. Fish
are going to get skinnier.
