Overall, this paper looks at the activity of Deep Sea Mining in the Pacific under the various spectrums of the blue economy, the sustainable development of Pacific States, as well as the gains and potential environmental loss that could flow from this activity. More specifically, this paper focus on comparing the legal framework differences between DSM in area within national jurisdictions and in areas beyond national jurisdiction with the view of highlighting some acute legal, structural and practical issues that should be dealt with before the actual realisation of any DSM exploration and applied research or exploitation projects. Ultimately this paper advocate for a close consistency between the two kinds of legal frameworks (within and beyond national jurisdiction) with a preference for the regime of “the area” to be the template for both. Implicitly, this paper also ponders the relevance of an extension of the ISA jurisdiction to the water column above the area.
