This timely book discusses various international norms that qualify the right, which all states have, to access and exploit living resources in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction, in order to promote the conservation of such species. It highlights current trends and developments which aim at better coherence, and discusses legal techniques that could serve to harmonize both the objectives of these international norms and their scope of applicability. The author also demonstrates that in some cases, gaps and conflicts in the existing legal framework cannot be simply `interpreted away' but require the further development of International law in order to be resolved.

MEDIA REVIEWS
it is important to underscore the value of this new book. It does an excellent job of detailing the legal challenges that stand in the way of improved conservation for particularly difficult species, such as anadromous and catadromous fish species, as well as marine mammals. . . Overall, legal scholars and practitioners will find the book to be a useful and comprehensive reference work for understanding the complexities and challenges of current legal arrangements for managing living resources on the high seas, and the history of how these have evolved. -- Elizabeth M. De Santo, Journal of International Wildlife Law & Policy
`This is an excellent book, which has taken apart a very complicated part of international law, and reassembled it in a manner which is up-to-date, accessible, insightful and coherent. In doing so, this work plugs a gap in the scholarship in this area, for which the author is to be truly commended. -- It is an essential addition for all practitioners, scholars and students who work or study, in one of the foremost environmental challenges of the 21st century: conservation on the high seas.' - Alexander Gillespie, University of Waikato, New Zealand
`The conservation of living marine resources with diverse characteristics and life styles has become an international concern. Borg's book provides an examination of the regulatory and legal implications of marine conservation. The analysis takes account of UNCLOS Treaties and the UNCED (1992) that aid a more holistic response by States towards conservation, the marine environment and socio-economic needs. Despite shortcomings and failures there have been success stories that highlight the potential of effective interaction between fisheries law and environmental law. The book addresses the legal aspects of international regimes aimed at setting conservation obligations, compliance and enforcement. This is a path breaking work that shows how international law can diversify itself into different legal streams to ensure flexibility and a degree of adaptation to the different interests of the States involved.' -- John McEldowney, University of Warwick, UK
`This book from Simone Borg is a much needed and highly recommended study on conservation on the high seas and harmonizing international regimes for the sustainable use of living resources. This publication is very topical considering the continuous over-exploitation of the living resources.
