Chapter Summary

This chapter considers a number of treaties that arguably apply to hydrothermal vents and that might provide useful framework regimes to assist in the conservation of the biodiversity of hydrothermal vents and the sustainable use of their resources. It discusses six additional sources of international law. They are: the 1992 Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North-East Atlantic; the 1986 Convention for the Protection of the Natural Resources and Environment of the South Pacific Region (noumea Convention); the 1980 Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources; the 1991 Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty; the 1980 Convention on Future Multilateral Co-operation in North-East Atlantic Fisheries (NEAF Convention); and the 1972 Convention for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Keywords: biodiversity; environmental treaties; hydrothermal vents; international law; Madrid Protocol; NEAF Convention; Noumea Convention; regional treaties; World Heritage Convention
