The deep sea makes up about two-thirds of the world’s ocean s. It begin s at a depth of around metres, both within and beyond zones of national jurisdiction. But deep-sea environment s are threatened by “imminent” mining and bottom trawling for fi sh, sa id the scienti s ts at the m eeting. “We’re calling for a new treaty to sew the gaps in international law that don’t.   Alvinella pompejana, a type of deep sea worm, can thrive at temperatures that would kill most living organisms. It has been used in skin creams — .   Abstract. Exploration and collection of marine genetic resources ('MGRs') has led to the identification of more t molecules. As a result of these discoveries, the number of international claims for marine gene patents deposited between and reached , and dozens of products based on deep-sea organisms have been patented.   This book is an interesting read for anyone curious about traditional knowledge, genetic resources, and attempts to protect these subjects both regionally and internationally. It provides a comprehensive picture of this global issue, addressing the gaps in current solutions with great insight.

  This article seeks to stimulate the nascent discussion on legal questions presented by access to, and use of, deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites and resources and to help guide ocean policy analysts in their efforts to formulate and implement appropriate conservation and management measures adapted to the unique multiple-use conflicts posed by the vent phenomena.   Stephanie Adelle Bonney, Bioprospecting, Scientific Research and Deep Sea Resources in Areas beyond National Jurisdiction: A Critical Legal Analysis, 10 N.Z.

Sources of law include cases, norms, regimes, and agreements, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This area of law is a prominent feature of international politics, evident in disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea, the Gulf of Guinea, the Indian Ocean, Arctic Ocean, and the Black Sea.

Under international law, no specific regime applies to these complex and paradoxical objects of use. The Law of the Sea Convention sets a framework that is partly inadequate for this new category of resources. The Biodiversity Convention and the Nagoya Protocol only address the genetic resources.
