Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book, which deals with the 30th annual Law of the Sea Conference of the Virginia Center for Oceans Law and Policy. In a series of timely panels, with participation by the world's top experts, this Conference reviews initially the overall scene. The Conference examines the challenges to truly achieving an ecosystem approach to fisheries management. It also addresses the too neglected issue of marine science capacity building to implement obligations to assist developing countries. The Conference further addresses selected oceans policy problems with significant scientific dimensions. It also talks about some of the legal issues in UNCLOS itself. Finally, Conference addresses the newer issues of marine biological diversity and marine genetic resources.

Keywords: ecosystem approach; fisheries management; marine biological diversity; marine genetic resources; ocean exploration; Oceans Law; UNCLOS
