M. Gianni, O.G. Bos

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report describes and evaluates the protection of biodiversity of the high seas (areas beyond nations EEZ) through the implementation of UN resolutions and comes forward with recommendations that can be used for the protection of biodiversity through a parallel process: the selection of EBSAs by the CBD (Part 1). We furthermore provide background information on deep-sea habitats (Part 2) and human pressures (Part 3) and we created a database of vulnerable marine ecosystems (VMEs) closed to bottom fisheries.
