With aquaculture operations fast expanding around the world, the adequacy of aquaculture-related laws and policies has become a hot topic.

-   There is a huge demand in the world for aquaculture seafood, and the industry has grown a lot in the recent years. The book is meant to be a comprehensive guide to the complex regulatory seascape, says Irene Dahl.

“Our oceans are increasingly targeted for their resources. This forward-looking collection of essays explore how States and regional arrangements are responding to challenges in the growth of aquaculture. Clarity of exposition, in what is an increasingly complex area of law and policy, is combined with breadt, depth and richness of research. Most importantly, the authors draw out valuable lessons and experience from around the world.

This book is an essential reference point for anyone concerned with the sustainable use of our oceons”, writes Richard Barnes, from the University of Hull, UK, about the book.
