The chapter explores the legal, political and environmental challenges facing the Arctic and Southern Oceans. While mindful of the distinctive governance and geophysical qualities of each geographical region, we focus on IUU fishing, marine protected areas, continental shelf delimitation and strategic access as something which has preoccupied coastal, claimant and extraterritorial states alike. We conclude on a pessimistic note warning of future tension over the management of living and non-living resources in both oceans.
