[Book Review] Strengthening International Fisheries Law in an Era of Changing Oceans edited by Richard Caddell and Erik Molenaar

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


The title Strengthening International Fisheries Law in an Era of Changing Oceans well reflects the view permeating the contents of the book. In this collection, every chapter resonates with the vision plunked at the front page. International experts with diverse degrees of experience and professional backgrounds, including preeminent scientists, economists, a social anthropologist and international legal academics make up for an outstanding list of contributors. This robust outlook of international fisheries law avoids purely legalistic points of view, which do not offer sufficient resolutions for dealing with fisheries sustainability in a constantly changing environment. The ‘changing oceans’ circumstances not only point to one of the reasons why international fisheries law needs a makeover, but it also attracts the minds of curious readers wishing to know more about the nexus between international law, fisheries, marine science, environmental changes and the oceans.
