This chapter examines the relationship between environmental damage and pollution in the marine sphere. It begins by tracing the evolution of the legal definition of marine pollution from its scientific origins. It then examines various examples of this definition to understand their implications for the legal definition of marine environmental damage. It presents a case study of marine pollution laws in Malaysia and Singapore to illustrate how the concepts of marine pollution and marine environmental damage are interpreted and applied to these two nations.
