Abstract
United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) system applies to all the ocean of the world, while Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) applies to the land and ocean of south of 60 ° S. Therefore, the ocean of south of 60 ° S will be regulated by the UNCLOS system and ATS simultaneously. Conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ) agreement is in accordance with UNCLOS, so it will also apply to the ocean of south of 60 ° S. But within the framework of ATS, the BBNJ issues were already regulated or noted, such as: MPAs, Utilization of Genetic Resources and IUU Fishing. Coordination and cooperation are urgently needed. Through the review of legislation history of Convention on the Regulation of Antarctic Mineral Resources (CRAMRA), we could get some experience of this coordination and cooperation. And through theory and practice analysis, we could conclude that the coordination and cooperation is feasible. Hence, the delegates who participated legislation work of BBNJ agreement should pay attention to this phenomenon and discuss the coordination and cooperation with ATS to lay foundation for the application in the ocean of south of 60 ° S.
