Greening small-scale fisheries and aquaculture
Marine-based renewable energy
Ocean nutrient pollution from agriculture, feritilizer production and wastewater management sectors
Metals in the deep : preparing for a new frontier in mining
Our seas are among our most valuable natural resources, yet human beings are exploiting them. The authors argue that sectors dependent on the marine environment, such as aquaculture and coastal tourism, can become more profitable while also reducing their environmental footprint. The book likewise explores how sectors such as agriculture, energy, and deep-sea mining can contribute to the creation of sustainable marine environments. Thematic maps and illustrations are used very effectively.
