(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The Spring 2018 edition of the “Proceedings”, the US Coast Guard Journal of Safety & Security at Sea has been posted. The focus of this edition is Marine Protected Areas.
Proceedings of the Marine Safety & Security Council, the Coast Guard Journal of Safety at Sea, is the voice of the Coast Guard’s Marine Safety and Security Council. It began publication in 1944 and, over the decades, has reached an increasing level of recognition among the larger maritime industry and Coast Guard personnel. Currently, over 30,000 copies of Proceedings are mailed out each issue.
Proceedings’ audience includes a large segment of the private maritime industry population, including retired officers, fishing vessel captains, river pilots, ocean scientists, marine engineers, tug/tow boat operators, shipping executives, insurance operators, and maritime lawyers. Other subscribers include U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy personnel, mariners, reservists, Departments of Homeland Security and Transportation staff, and allied foreign national readers.
The U.S. Coast Guard publishes Proceedings three times a year. Each edition of Proceedings-typically 80 to 100 pages-features a specific theme and is championed by a Coast Guard office, assigned based on the command’s expertise in that area. Recent themes have included: The 21st Century Maritime Workforce; Recreational Boating Safety; Waterways: America’s Economic Engine; Safety Management Systems; and Improving Maritime Safety.
