Koster archipelago is high in diversity; Koster has at least 200 unique species, and also contains various elements attracting a lot of tourists. Koster archipelago resembles various factors that are highly suitable for recreational boating. However, this may become a massive environmental threat. This study investigates the environmental implications of recreational boating and the factors facilitating the impacts by conducting a systems analysis of recreational boating. The investigation has led to the identification of releases of NOx, COx,HCs, and TBT, among other pollutants. In addition, the investigation have estimated the possible total emissions amounts of boats in Koster, with approximately 850 000 kg CO2,2500 kg NOx, 256 kg sewage Nitrogen, 32 kg sewage Phosphorous, 126.6 kg, and a minimum of 3.2 kg of TBT released per year.
