Standards concerning the prevention and control of vessel-source marine pollution are one of the most extensively regulated areas of international law. Despite such extensive regulation issues surrounding compensation for natural resource injury consequential to an oil spill are unsettled. International law clearly recognizes the rights of victims of vessel-source oil pollution damage to be compensated for quantifiable injuries but injury to natural resources per se and their economic valuation is more controversial. The quantification of injury to natural resources involves difficult questions surrounding both the assessment of injury to natural resources and then the award of appropriate compensatory damages.
