Conservation

For conservation and sustainable use of marine bio-resources, mid- and long-term plans are formulated and updated and monitored on a regular basis by MABIK.

Conservation

ŸConservationŸof the Marine Ecosystem

  • Protecting marine life and habitats
  • Taking scientific measures to keep the ecosystem healthy

ŸRestoration,ŸProliferation and Collection

  • Pursuing restoration and proliferation of endangered species
  • Collecting industrially useful species for mass proliferation

Marine LifeRescue and Relief

  • Rescuing and releasing marine life affected by disasters
  • Protecting marine life from illegal or incidental capture

Measures Against IntroducedŸSpecies and LMOs

  • Managing introduced species that threaten indigenous species
  • Managing living modified organisms (LMOs)

ŸSecuring Marine Bio-Resources as National Assets

International conventions and agreements such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Access to Genetic Resources and Benefit Sharing (ABS) stress the importance of securing bio-resources as national assets. At MABIK, we are committed to securing and protecting our national rights to marine bio-resources found in the territorial waters of Korea. We will also provide the general public with high-quality, high value-added marine bio-resources as well as their information.

ProcessŸ of securing marine living resources as national assets

  • Build a database of traditional knowledge

ŸInventory Development

  • Integrate bio-resource information networks
  • Create inventories conforming to international standards
  • Enter information with scientific, economic and medical benefits

ŸData Submission & Claiming Rights to Marine Bio-Resources

  • Submit evidentiary materials to international organizations and claim the rights
  • Present scientific basis
  • Secure sovereign rights to marine bio-resources
  • Perform research on bio-resources in the high seas

Ÿ Industrial Utilization of Marine Bio-Resources

  • Discover materials for the biotechnology industry using domestic and foreign marine life
  • Sell high value-added marine bio-resources in lots through the bio-resource bank
  • Contribute to industrial promotion by securing useful genetic resources
