First international water marine protected area

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

The first Marine Protected Area was declared in the international waters of the Ross Sea of Antartica, after 5 years of negociations. It is not a proper protected area as it will not deliver a protection status permanently, because of the Russian of the Chinese fisheries operating in the area.
