'This book represents an authoritative, comprehensive and thorough examination of the new international fisheries law. The editor, Ellen Hey, has brought together the most eminent experts to discuss the different facets of the law, and although there are some overlaps, the different contributions primarily serve to supplement each other. The editor has also ably put the articles into a fitting context by her introduction and conclusions. The book is a "must" for students of international fisheries law.
