Marine Ecosystem Management
Obligations and Opportunities

"The ocean is the cradle of life on earth."
-Our Sea, Our future: State of the Marine Environment Report for Australia.
"To maintain, restore and sustainably use the sea's biological diversity and the essential products and services that it provides, we must act now."
-Troubled Waters-A Call for Action

The Seaviews conference, in 1998 - the International Year of the Oceans, explored the concepts and practice of marine ecosystem management, the opportunities and obligations.

All sectors with an interest in the sea were invited.

The conference covered all areas-from terrestial impacts on the sea and coastal management, through to the management of human impacts on the deep oceans. Our focus was on preferred futures, solutions, and how we get there.
