The destructive effects of activities such as illegal and unreported fishing, pollution of the marine environment and resource exploitation have led to increasing concern for the health of the oceans. Nowadays, human activity in the seas is not limited to areas under national jurisdiction but extends to areas beyond national jurisdiction, in addition , science and technology cause to emerge new activities in these area. Therefore, planning and implementation of environmental and eco-based management plans is a critical issue. Preventing environmental damage is one of the principles of international environmental law that is made possible through environmental impact assessment. The incorporation of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is rooted in international and regional documents, into the binding international agreement is a tool that assists the international community in the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity.
