About

Maritime Matters is a blog initiated by Colleen Jacka, editor of Maritime Review Africa, aimed at complementing the editorial coverage undertaken by the magazine on a bi-monthly basis while at the same time exploring ways of making Maritime Matters Matter to the world at large.

Our oceans – distant to most – are an integral part of our existence on the planet. From our earliest known history explorers have braved the untamed oceans; conquerors and colonists have navigated to new worlds; traders have found new markets; man has exploited the resources and adventurers continue to explore the oceans’ depths.

We owe so much to those oceans and yet mostly ignore what transpires at sea.
