In the interests of increasing fish production globally, alleviating global poverty, and income generation, marine aquaculture has seen worldwide expansion over the past few decades. However, this expansion has been matched by growing concerns over its environmental impacts. This article utilizes comparative legal analysis to explore the legal systems of governance for the environmental performance of marine aquaculture in four case study countries. Two are members of the European Community (Scotland, as part of the United Kingdom, and Greece), one is a recent accession country (Slovenia), and the fourth is closely linked to the European Community albeit geographically and legally disparate (Israel).
