Distinguishing Features :
A recommended route is a route of undefined width, for the convenience of ships in transit, which is often marked by centerline buoys (IHO Dictionary, S-32, 5th Edition, 4448). A recommended route describes the regulation of navigation for non-hydrographic reasons such as the prevention of collision or the avoidance of pollution risks. It is generally laid down by a national or international authority other than the hydrographic authority. (IHO Chart Specifications, M-4)
