Ocean governance | European Marine Board

Ocean governance

Ocean governance aims to manage and use the world’s seas ocean and its resources in a healthy, productive, safe, secure and resilient way. To achieve this, cooperation and shared international responsibility is needed, especially for areas of the ocean outside the boarders of national jurisdiction.
