Conservation, Development and Collective Power in the Tuna-Political Indo-Pacific explores industrial fisheries, which now cover 55 per cent of the World’s oceans, an area four times larger than the terrestrial area devoted to agriculture. In addition to fisheries, our oceans provide crucial highways and oceanscapes for shipping, oil and gas, seabed mining, blue carbon, coastal development, tourism and defense – all of which must balance conservation and development imperatives as they navigate and exploit our fragile marine environment.

This book analyses and discusses the development of regional fisheries management and development in the Indo-Pacific, with the purpose of fostering the expansion and further development of collective strategies, science-based approaches and true ocean stewardship. It is the first book to analyze the development of these regional initiatives and discuss their global implications for sustainable development.
