About this book

Explains the wave of regional disputes that arose in the 1990s over fish stocks that straddle both national waters and the high seas. The focus rests on whether and how evolving regimes, (including those based on the UN Fish Stocks Agreement), meet the scientific, regulatory, and compliance-related goals of effective management - and the significance of regime interplay in this regard.
