Chapter Summary

This chapter confines to examining the topic "oceans in the nuclear age" from a Caribbean perspective and focusing on the sea transport of nuclear materials, hazardous waste and pollution in the Caribbean Sea and, in a broader context, the preservation of this Sea for future generations. The Caribbean Sea is a heavily trafficked sea area that also provides economic (in the form of oil and gas) and recreational support to the people of the region. Therefore it will be convenient to consider briefly the geographical, historic and political directorates of this region. Trinidad and Tobago, although small in size, is a large producer of oil and natural gas. Exploration and exploitation takes place in the Caribbean Sea on the north of the island, but predominantly on its southeast coast in the Atlantic Ocean.

Keywords: Caribbean Sea; exploitation; exploration; nuclear waste; Tobago; Trinidad
