Summary "Kunich offers a detailed examination of applicable international law as well as domestic laws of the nations with key marine resources, and demonstrates the abject failure of these measures to prevent or halt a mass extinction in our oceans. He concludes with a set of legal proposals that could start us down the road to preserving marine hotspots and, with them, much of Earth's biodiversity. Legal solutions are not the only answer, but they are a beginning."--BOOK JACKET
