Perhaps. But in your marina's instance, I'd almost be willing to bet that rather than "environmentalists" banning hull cleaning, it is actually the marina operator and their lawyers who are looking to reduce their exposure. No altruistic love of the environment involved. That's certainly been the scenario here in California.

Whatever is the case in your harbor, it was a decision made in ignorance of the facts.
