Boat traffic characteristics, in three main passages in the Greek part of the Aegean Sea and neighbouring international waters, were assessed between November 2009 and April 2010. Data on fleet characteristics (vessel type,size flag, hazardous substances carried and speed) passing through these passages were collected on a 24 hour basis using the Mariweb system. Dense ship traffic was found in all three areas, along with a lack of traffic lanes and routes.
