Dear colleagues,

on behalf of Prof. Dr. Alexander Proelss, I am pleased to announce the publication
of the following paper in The International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law.

Proelss, A., Krivickaite, M., Gilles, A., Herr, H., Siebert, U. (2011). Protection
of Cetaceans in European Waters - A Case Study on Bottom-Set Gillnet Fisheries
within Marine Protected Areas. The International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law
26: 5-45

This article explores the legal regime of the protection of marine species and
habitats within European waters by taking the protection of harbour porpoises in the
German territorial sea and exclusive economic zone as an example. The analysis is
based on a scientific assessment of the occurrence of and the anthropogenic impacts
on harbour porpoises in the North Sea. The relationship between the protection of
marine species within the European Union (EU) on the one hand and the Common
Fisheries Policy of the EU on the other constitutes a classic example of a
user-environment conflict. The article explores how such conflicts ought to be
solved under the pertinent legal rules.
