"This volume will be of great use to the growing numbers of ocean practitioners from all sectors, dedicated to improving the health and sustainability of our oceans, for generations to come."
— Michael H. Depledge, University of Exeter Medical School, from the Foreword
"…a must-read for both practitioners and scholars of science?policy interaction in ocean politics, and will also be a useful reference point beyond this domain for the entire field of global environmental governance."
— Frank Biermann, Utrecht University and Earth System Governance Project
"It adds substantially to the growing body of research literature on the science–policy interface and I recommend this important volume to the new generation of 'information brokers' who occupy the space between science and policy and build bridges of communication and understanding."
— Lawrence Hildebrand, World Maritime University
"This book is unique in that it examines the diversity of actors and factors bridging the science–policy interface, such as the inclusion of both gray and primary literature, different forms of knowledge, information brokers, boundary organizations, different levels of decision makers, governance structures, and politics."
— Nick Harvey, University of Adelaide
"Global coastal systems are among the dynamic and complex environments humans engage. This volume takes on a rare and broad-ranging view of how science and information can be used to more effectively and sustainably manage these essential places. It is a welcome contribution to the literature during a period of great social vulnerability to global environmental change."
— Robert E. Bowen, University of Massachusetts
"As a scientist who has often worked on the interface of knowledge and policy I found I recognized many of the themes picked up in this book. It is a tremendously valuable contribution to advancing sustainable management and conservation of the ocean and will be of use to marine scientists, students who have an interest in applying their work and knowledge to real problems and to the governance and NGO community."
— Alex David Rogers, University of Oxford
