Filling Regulatory Gaps in High Seas Fisheries, author Yoshinobu Takei investigates the regime of high seas fisheries from the perspective of international law and considers whether there are regulatory gaps in high seas fisheries and, if so, how they should be filled. The book focuses on topical issues such as the management of deep-sea fisheries on the high seas and the protection of vulnerable marine ecosystems.
In view of the current state of marine fisheries resources, together with ecosystem concerns, swift and effective action is required to improve fisheries management, in particular for high seas fisheries. Takei thoroughly analyzes the current state of affairs and convincingly suggests steps to be taken in the future.
Yoshinobu Takei, Ph.D. (Utrecht University), is Research Associate at the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea, Utrecht University. He has published extensively on various aspects of international law, in particular the law of the sea.
"The book is recommended as a worthwhile read for anyone who is interested in the high seas, DHSFS, deepsea fisheries, VME, the specific RFMOs and regions discussed, or fisheries and conservation matters more generally."
