9780415958523: Marine Natural Resources and Technological Development: An Economic Analysis of the Wealth from the Oceans (Routledge Studies in Development and Society)

This book offers a comprehensive and systematic examination of the issues involved within Ocean Economics. The oceans are the last frontier on Earth, and research and exploration are key to developing and enhancing global economic activity that is necessary to sustain a growing human population. Colazingari pinpoints the contentious issues relevant to oceans’ natural resources management and protection. He examines the cutting edge technology used for the exploration of the oceans’ living and non living resources (fisheries, bio-products, energy resources, mineral deposits) and identifies the significant emerging patterns that will determine the development of ocean economics in the future. Problems require timely action by politicians and policymakers at an international level, while scientists and researchers must assist in providing reliable information and investigating viable options.

With writing that is straightforward but comprehensive, this book will appeal to professionals, academics, students, as well as anyone interested in marine environment.

Review:

"This book offers an introduction to the broad perspective of the expanding field of ocean economics together with standard economic theory. It provides a comprehensive and clear account of marine natural resources issues such as fisheries, mining, offshore oil and gas, renewable energy and biogenetic resources. The clear explanations and basic principles that underpin the text make it readily accessible to non-economists coming from diverse programs of study." -- Domenico da Empoli, University of Rome

"In this extensive review of the economics of the world's oceans, Colazingari (Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies) provides a detailed examination of the convergence of technology, politics, policy, and natural resource conservation as it relates to the marine environment... highly recommended." -- J.A. Hewlett, Choice, July 2008
