Hans-Joachim Koch, Doris König, Joachim Sanden and Roda Verheyen offer important new insights into legal questions on climate change at a regional level and the legal instruments available to address environmental problems on critical maritime topics. An international group of eminent authors put forward proposals for solving legal challenges in International Law, European Law and domestic law. Important themes including national climate protection law regulations (e.g. in the U.S.A., the EU, China and South Africa), regulations on International Fisheries, Mariculture and Environmental Protection, Regional Fisheries Management Organisations, Overfishing and Ocean Governance are addressed. This volume is of particular relevance for academic and practicing lawyers with an interest in the recent legal discussions on climate change law and Environmental Law of the Sea.
