Abstract

Technological advances in recent decades underpin the massive progress in the exploration and characterization of deep-sea ecosystems, revealing highly diverse deep-sea floor habitats and a realm that is vulnerable to disturbance. Nonetheless, the deep sea remains mostly unknown. Likewise, gaps in governance abound as most legal frameworks, both national and international, lack essential mechanisms to manage and protect ocean resources such as provisions for integrated, ecosystem-based and systematic planning and management. A significant challenge here is that management needs to keep pace with fast-growing industries. This communication focuses on three main aspects of the legacy of Professor Mario Ruivo for sustainable use of the deep oceans 1) scientific discovery and observation; 2) legal and policy tools; and 3) awareness and global environmental justice.
