Abstract

The Istanbul Strait (Bosphorus), the Canakkale Strait (Dardanelles), and the Marmara Sea are; the components of the Turkish Straits Sea Area-TSSA, one of the most significant sea routes used for global maritime transport. Turkish Straits Sea Area, from past to present, has historical, geopolitical, geographical, strategic, and economic significance. Owing to the 1936 Montreux Convention, the management and control of the Turkish Straits have been passed to the Republic of Turkey. The Turkish Straits are a natural waterway that is unique in the world. There are settlements on two sides of both Istanbul and Canakkale Straits, and transportation provides by bridges that provide land passage. The control and maintenance for maritime safety and management processes such as local shipping traffic between the two coasts, innocent transit in international maritime transport, security navigation, and marine environmental management are under the authority of the Republic of Turkey. With the increased factor of energy transportation from the Black Sea recently, the Turkish Straits have gained more importance. This study is trying to explain Environmental Management Planning and Policies of Marine Pollution by Ship transportation at Canakkale Strait.
