Abstract

In light of new scientific discoveries and technological developments in the deep ocean, there is broad concern over the ability of the present system of international governance to deliver sustainable management. This article seeks to identify key objectives for the current international debate. These include: (i) bringing currently unregulated high seas fisheries under international management as soon as possible; (ii) developing a mechanism for the conservation of high seas biodiversity, including appropriate regulation of activities related to marine bioprospecting, and (iii) promoting ocean exploration for the benefit of mankind as a whole. It further suggests some practical ways in which existing governance mechanisms might be used and adapted in the short-term specifically in order to improve the management of deep-sea fisheries on the high seas and to accommodate new and developing uses of the deepocean environment.
