The formulation of the Agenda 2030 of the United Nations in 2015 has given rise to a substantial increase of attention payed to the sustainable governance of our oceans. Yet, the institutional landscape remains fragmented and driving an ecologically  and socially just transition of existing ocean governance practices forward remains a challenge. This introductory chapter gives an insight into the background discussions that led to this edited book on the Sustainable Development Goal 14 and offers  an overview over the structure of the book.
