This thesis has been submitted in partial satisfaction of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Cardiff University Law School. The objective of this thesis is to examine the operation, impact and legal framework of reservations and vetoes, termed "exemptive provisions," in marine conservation agreements. The need to improve ocean governance is manifest and this research is intended to help illuminate the path forward. This is a work of public international law but the key issues addressed in this thesis should be of interest to anyone concerned about marine conservation. English spelling in this thesis is American. Citation style is an adaptation of the seventeenth edition of the "The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation " - the benchmark for legal writing in the United States. 'Because "The Bluebook" more typically applies to shorter works, some adaptations were made for ease and clarity. With regard to footnotes, each chapter is self-contained and independent of the others.
