About this book

For more than 15 years, marine biologists, oceanographers, and specialists in foreign policy, ocean development, international law, and strategic studies have found the "Ocean Yearbook" series to be a valuable asset for research on one of the world's vital resources. Volume 12 focuses on the sustainable development and use of the world's oceans and their resources. Major articles examine the managerial implications of sustainable development in different oceanic regions as well as how they relate to fisheries, coastal ecosystems, and genetic and biochemical resources. Current problems associated with marine transportation are also addressed. In addition, it celebrates the entry into force of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the recent conclusion of the agreement relating to the conservation and management of straddling and highly migratory fish stocks.
