Over the years there have been stories of notorious oil spillages in the Niger Delta regions of the country, deposition of deadly industrial wastes into the seas at Lagos Lagoons and beaches, deposition of Biological and medical wastes in the Nigerian sea borders etc. which have led to death of sea and land animals including man in most cases as well as other environmental hazards; yet the perpetrators’ of such dastardly acts are most times not apprehended or adequately punished.
Such situations and occurrence as described above has high degree adverse effect on nature generally either on short term or long term basis.
Therefore prevention of such situations from occurring is best advocated for instead of control and management.
It is to this extent that only high technological expert systems such as Maritime information systems with accurate data processing, storage, retrieval and simulation as well as precise results and outputs can be used in effective protection of the Maritime environment and prevention of pollution occurrence in the country.
The research design employed in this work was a survey descriptive type in which means, frequency and percentages all in a tabular format were used in the analysis of data gathered from the respondents encountered in the process. The respondents used in the study were made up of 15 senior staffs and 33 junior staffs gathered from 5 departments of the Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) Lagos.
