About this book

As world natural resources diminish and the necessity of protecting our environment becomes critical, the need for efficient marine management increases. However, marine boundaries are not easily defined and in disputed areas the prospect of sound management is difficult. The Barents Sea is a perfect example of this. Despite being rich in living resources, the area remains under developed and its eco-system is under growing threat. This inefficient management is largely due to two legal disputes, both of which involve the USSR. Marine Management in Disputed Areas examines the complicated management of the Barents Sea, as well as offering a detailed analysis of two highly sensitive legal disputes.
