Oceans

Front Cover
Council of Europe, Jan 1, 1999 - Political Science - 175 pages
In order to preserve the quality of the sea's resources, fisheries management policies must take into account not only economic, biological & environmental aspects of this problem, but also its social aspects. Marine science & technology research on, for example, fisheries & fish stocks, biodiversity, the ocean's moderation of the greenhouse effect, undersea exploration & coastal management, all play a significant role in the formulation of the policies for long-term management of the sea's biological resources. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe recommends the creation of a European maritime agency which takes into account the ocean's many functions & uses. This book explores all of these ideas, reviews all the legal instruments linked to the exploration of the oceans, & details the new trends in the international law of the sea -- the sea "which belongs to no one".
