Marine species are depleting globally at an alarming rate. Traditional legal methods that seek to achieve the sustainable utilisation and preservation of fish stocks and whales have largely failed. This subject provides an overview of the established international regimes – including the Law of the Sea Convention – and introduces students to alternative and emerging laws relating to marine species. Students will investigate and critique voluntary management endorsed by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), trade measures and subsidy policy developed under the auspices of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and conservation pursuant to environmental treaties, and will consider how these manifold approaches relate to one another within the system of international law. The lecturer has published widely on fisheries law, trade law and on the interaction between international legal regimes.
