For nearly twenty years, this series has been devoted to the issues and concerns affecting the world's oceans. Marine biologists, oceanographers, and specialists in foreign policy, ocean development, international law, and strategic studies have found the Ocean Yearbook series to be an invaluable tool for research on one of the world's vital resources.
Volume 13 examines urbanization of coastal zones, zones of peace, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, fisheries management, aquaculture, minerals development, ecotourism, liner shipping, and corporate responsibility for maritime disasters, as well as marine conservation and management efforts around the world. Additionally, important regional development, environmental, and coastal management topics are discussed. Each volume in this series includes numerous appendices, providing essential reports from organizations, selected documents and proceedings, and tabular data on marine activities and resources.
