Currently, the amount of cruise ships coming into Monterey county each year is about 27. But the amount of pollution to the bay upon each cruise ships arrival is detrimental to the environment. Not only is there a significant amount of dumpage into the bay of food mixed with plastic waste, but there is a significant amount of noise pollution which is detrimental to the animals in the area and ruins our natural ecosystem. Several cruise lines have already been reprimanded for violating their probation and continuing to be harmful to the ocean environment, however, nothing has been done. They have been sending teams to fix environmental violations just prior to inspections and falsifying training records.  We are fighting to limit the amount to cruise ships to the Monterey Bay Area as we know that tourism is pertinent to our economy’s growth.
