This book deals with China’s response to international fisheries law and policy as envisaged in the LOSC framework and post-LOSC fisheries instruments. A substantial effort was made to examine the major areas of China’s national action on legislative harmonisation and policy adjustment to implement these instruments. China’s regional fisheries cooperation, in the form of bilateral agreements with Japan, South Korea and Vietnam, is evaluated to identify the progress already achieved and the problems that remain to be solved in managing the shared fish stocks between these maritime neighbours.
As the first monograph of its kind dealing with the complex issue of the global fisheries crisis and China’s fisheries management practice over a significant period of time, the book builds a bridge between China and the world for a better understanding of Chinese fisheries management. It will be of great value to academics, professionals, and policy-makers alike.

Being one of the largest coastal States in the world, China’s marine legal system is significant in the overall development of the international law of the sea. This book focuses on the establishment and development of China’s marine legal system in the context of the new law of the sea centered on the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which China ratified in 1996. It consists of five parts concerning, respectively, a general survey of China’s marine legal system, navigation and maritime security, marine resources management, marine environmental protection and marine scientific research. China’s basic marine laws and regulations are discussed and assessed in detail throughout the book.
The book is of interest to lawyers, whether practicing or academic, officials in national governments and international organizations and students and scholars in academia, who are interested in international law, international relations and ocean affairs.
The focus of this book is on current ocean law and policy issues particularly in the region around China. A main emphasis is a comprehensive survey of Chinese positions on potential flashpoints such as delimitation in the East China Sea and South China Sea. Other topical subjects covered by both Chinese and outside experts are integrated coastal zone management, oil and gas development in the region, fishery management and enforcement, global advancements in marine science, commercial navigation challenges and protection of underwater cultural heritage sites. The authors make clear that there is a strong, shared commitment to cooperative solutions over maritime disputes within the framework of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The work will be useful to anyone concerned with law of the sea in general and the evolving attitudes of States near China in particular.
