|Abstract: ||Abstract: On October 10 th , 2005, the chemical ship SAMHO BROTHER mishap occurred in the Taiwan Strait while transporting a cargo of benzene. Explosive approach was applied but failed, causing the ship wreck sank to a depth of 70 m. Oil spill was recovered in a small amount, leaving about 50 tons of the fuel remained. On the other hand, environmental monitoring at the site of the accident revealed that almost all of the great amount of 3140 m 3 benzene remains stored in the nine tanks on the ship and further actions upon such a unique event in the his-tory are urgent. Some possible ways for countermeasure policy are analyzed and discussed subjectively and objectively based on considerations of the ship owner and the government of the Republic of China at Taiwan. They are to leave the ship at its current site, to salvage the ship and its cargo, to extract the remaining fuel oil and benzene, and to blow up the ship in an underwater explosion.
