Description This Vessel Entries And Transits (VEAT) data is offered by the Washington State Department of Ecology in response to public requests for information about commercial vessel traffic in Washington waters. The data identifies vessels tracked by Ecology. These include: cargo and passenger vessels 300 gross tons and larger; and tank ships and tank barges, transporting oil, of any tonnage. Starting in 2007, VEAT data classifies tankers carrying edible oil or tallow as tank ships and not cargo & passenger (C&P) vessels. This change reflects the change in the definition of "oil" under Washington State law. VEAT lists data by vessel destination and vessel type, and does not reflect specific products or commodities transported or delivered.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.

ADA Accessibility
The Department of Ecology is committed to providing people with disabilities access to information and services by meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Washington State Policy #188.
