A bilateral network of marine protected areas between Vietnam and China: Is it the solution to substitute China’s unilateral ban on fishing in the South China Sea? (Part 1)

South China Sea

Synopsis: The paper supports the establishment of a network to manage bilaterally the marine protected areas (MPA) between China and Vietnam in the eastern part of the South China Sea in a capacity of a solution to substitute China’s annual ban on fishing in the area.

Such a bilateral network, if feasible, not only makes a contribution to maintaining the resources of marine life in the South China Sea, but also to boosting the relations between China and Vietnam, at the same time diminishing the tension in the region. The paper also deals with a number of prospects about the way of forming the network as well as the way of managing the constituents of the network and at the same time considers the claims of overlapping in the area based on the differences in the geographical and biological factors.
