More Information
Bringing together leading scholars from across a diverse range of disciplines, this unique book examines a key question: How can we best conserve marine living resources in the polar regions, where climate change effects and human activities are particularly pressing?

Part one of this timely book focuses on Antarctica, centring on the evolving work of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources in managing the marine living resources of the Southern Ocean. Part two explores the multi-level governance regime in the Arctic, analysing the central Arctic Ocean fisheries agreement, the role of the Arctic Council and law and governance in Arctic states. Finally, part three considers some of the new challenges and opportunities, including new technology, bioprospecting and dispute settlement.

Providing a comprehensive assessment of the governance regimes of marine living resources in the polar regions, this book will be of great interest to academics, NGOs, international organizations and government officials, whilst also being a key resource for practitioners working in the fisheries industries.
Critical Acclaim
‘The polar regions are sentinels for biophysical change, changes that are in turn likely to have a range of impacts on geopolitics, human activities, resource use and environmental management. This book provides a timely and significant assessment of these opportunities and challenges, drawing on insights from experts on the Arctic and Southern Oceans. These perspectives – from science, law and political science – provide a comprehensive assessment of the current state of marine resource management in the polar regions.'
– Marcus Haward, University of Tasmania, Australia

‘The Earth's marine systems are under increasing pressure, nowhere more so than in the polar regions. In this timely volume, a team of knowledgeable analysts assess the capacity of existing Antarctic and Arctic regimes to cope with the resultant governance challenges. This work will be of interest not only to those concerned with the polar regions but also to the broader community of those interested in the fate of the world's marine systems in this era of global change.’
– Oran R. Young, University of California, Santa Barbara, US
