This map illustrates the principal transportation routes within the Belize coastal zone. In addition to merchant and passenger ships, two oil tankers, which between them carry almost two million gallons of oil, visit Belize City each month. A major oil spill would present a serious hazard to coastal ecosystems and species and the development of an oil spill contingency plan based on a detailed analysis of ecosystem vulnerability should be regarded as a major national priority. - Gibson et al. 1993, "Guidelines for Developing a Coastal Zone Management Plan for Belize: the GIS Database"
