As urged by planetary boundary scientists, ‘there is an urgent need for a new paradigm that integrates the continued development of human societies and the maintenance of the Earth system in a resilient and accommodating state’.1 With rising temperatures, melting ice, increased human activities and a changing geopolitical landscape, what will the future of the Polar Regions look like? Will current governance regimes be sufficient and resilient enough to ensure a sustainable social-ecological future in the Polar Regions? In this book, we examine governance of marine living resources to address the above questions.
