With aquaculture operations fast expanding around the world, the adequacy of aquaculture-related laws and policies has become a hot topic. This much-needed book provides a comprehensive guide to the complex regulatory seascape.

Split into three distinct parts, the expert contributors first review the international legal dimensions, including chapters on the law of the sea, trade, and access and benefit sharing for aquatic genetic resources. Part two discusses how the EU and regional bodies, such as the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO), have addressed aquaculture development and management whilst the final part contains twelve national case studies exploring how leading aquaculture producing countries have been putting sustainability principles into practice. These case studies focus on implementation approaches and challenges, in particular emphasizing ongoing national struggles in attaining effective aquaculture zoning and marine spatial planning.

Students and scholars of environmental law and politics will find this contemporary volume an invaluable addition to the limited academic literature critiquing aquaculture law and policy. Policy makers, international bodies and NGOs will also find its insights particularly informative when ensuring sustainable aquaculture regulation and development.

Contributors include: N.l Bankes, J.L. Batongbacal, P. Carrol, lI. Dahl, M. Doell, C. Engler, J. Fuentes Olmos, J. Glazewski, M. Haward, F. Humphries, A. Johannsdottir, H. Liu, R. Long, I.E.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Our oceans are increasingly targeted for their resources. This forward-looking collection of essays explores how States and regional arrangements are responding to challenges in the growth of aquaculture. Clarity of exposition, in what is an increasingly complex area of law and policy, is combined with breadth, depth and richness of research. Most importantly, the authors draw out valuable lessons and experience from around the world. This book is an essential reference point for anyone concerned with the sustainable use of our oceans.' --Richard A. Barnes, The University of Hull, UK
