Firing warning shots legal or not?

Ahoy , sailors and countrymen, any lawyers out there or experts on maritime law that can lend a hand to me legal use of warning shots fired in anger from by bow deck when those stinking motor boats cut you off or rock the hell out of you for no good reason? How about the environmental effects of lead grape and chain on the unsuspecting wildlife? Think the EPA would give me a keel hauling or what? Any other advise on beligerence at sea? Speak up you swabs!
