The chapters by Kaye, Rothwell, Chircop and McDorman demonstrate the commitment of both countries to zone the oceans in accord with the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, although Canada is still in the process of formalising a contiguous zone and an exclusive economic zone. Australia is attempting to move towards sustainable marine resource management through the Ocean Rescue 2000 program and the recently announced National Coastal Action Plan. Canada has proposed a new Oceans Act which, if passed, would mandate development of a national oceans management strategy and authorise integrated coastal management planning.
