Benefit-sharing can only be implemented if developing countries can control their marine and coastal genetic resources with regard to bioprospecting activities through prior informed consent, and if developed states are legally obliged to take the necessary measures with the aim of sharing the revenues from the utilisation of marine and coastal genetic resources and transferring biotechnology.
