Looks at the issues of ownership, governance and trade in aquatic genetic resources. It describes the growing demand for aquatic genetic resources and the desperate need to fill the policy vacuum for the management and conservation of aquatic biodiversity as a foundation for rules governing access to and use of aquatic genetic resources. Focuses on the rights of indigenous and local communities providing access to those resources, and their role in managing and conserving aquatic biodiversity.

Thomas Lovejoy, President of the Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment
