Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the study of regional co-management of fisheries resources in South China Sea from two perspectives: short-term and long-term objectives. The uniqueness of the South China Sea leads to its dependence on the reasonable development and conservation of fisheries resources by bordering nations and areas. Although some are government organizations and some are nongovernment institutions, all have played an important role in developing and conserving marine resources and establishing a basis for regional co-management and co-conservation of fisheries resources among bordering nations in the South China Sea. The nations bordering the South China Sea signed and ratified the 1982 Convention and pay close attention to the rational utilization and conservation of fisheries resources. Studies are merited about the bordering nations' differences in decision-making policies, politics, societies, economics, science, technology and cultures, as well as the objectives in regional co-management of fisheries resources in the South China Sea.

Keywords: Co-conservation; fisheries resources; regional co-management; South China sea
