We all understand that today, with the significant and sometimes revolutionary advances in maritime transport and technology, the use of the world oceans by humans extends so far beyond the traditional activities. There are new emerging activities, such as oil exploration and production, bioprospecting, developments of the offshore renewable energy and others, and such activities challenge the applicability of the existing maritime policy and law. The present Handbook was developed and released by Routledge with the intention to examine the current regulatory and enforcement instruments/mechanisms applicable to the various sectors of maritime activity. It is a very comprehensive reference and it will be of great interest and use to students of maritime law, practicioners and even non-lawyers willing to deepen their knowledge of the offshore areas regulation.
