Abstract


  • Strong and coherent regional governance is critical for tackling the increasing number and variety of threats to fisheries and

    biodiversity within and beyond national jurisdiction including overfishing, destructive fishing practices, marine pollution and climate

    change impacts. This chapter examines the existing legal and institutional framework for fisheries and biodiversity governance at the

    regional level including key regional organizations such as regional fisheries management organizations, regional seas organizations

    and non-binding regional initiatives. As well as highlighting the fragmentary nature of regional oceans governance, this analysis

    discloses

    the wide variety of approaches to and differing rates of progress in harmonizing fisheries and biodiversity conservation

    objectives

    across major oceanic regions.
