Since the entry force of the CSD in 1993, countries have struggled to find answers to several questions relat.ed to ADS issues and have spent considerable amou~ts of time, energy and money in understanding how to operationalise these principles. One critical area that is beginning to appear during the discussions under the international regime is the status of marine genetic resources with a particular emphasis emerging on genetic resOurces available in areas beyond national jurisdiction. This paper presents some key legal and policy issues that negotiators of the international regime on ABS need to consider in relation to marine genetic resources.
