These case studies illustrate the steps in an approach to managing human maritime activities known as ecosystem-based management (EBM). EBM has been used in terrestrial resource management for about 15 years, but its application to marine resource management only began more recently. WWF was the first global conservation organisation to proffer an EBM framework for marine fisheries, thus creating a testing ground for precautionary, conservation-oriented EBM for all relevant maritime sectors. The case studies presented here further indicate that EBM for the oceans is no longer a hypothetical concept. It can be, and has been, implemented and is making significant gains.
