Magistrate O'Shea handed down her decision on Monday 22 January 2007 in the Brisbane Magistrates Court for the illegal discharge of one large plastic (AQIS) bag from the Russian registered container ship Khudozhnik Zhukov that polluted the beach at Teewah Village, near Noosa, Queensland on 22 February 2005. The ship owners were fined $20,000 and the Master was fined $3,000.

 

The magistrate noted the potential environmental harm of the plastic bag and that it polluted the sea area near the World Heritage listed Fraser Island - AMSA presented expert opinion on the effects of plastic in the marine environment as well as a necropsy of a turtle (conducted by Lance Ferris) were provided to support potential harm.
