Pinto presents her 2010 doctoral dissertation in law at the University of Edinburgh, titled Towards the Implementation of Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management in Marine Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction. She discusses the law-making of such management and its implementation, focusing on problems associated with a traditional single-species fisheries management approach, within the legal framework of high-seas fisheries as set out in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Her topics are ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM), international policy and legal framework, fishing practices in areas beyond national jurisdiction, partition of the oceans and compatibility between economic exclusion zones and high-seas fisheries management, regional fisheries management organizations and the implementation of EBFM, and high-seas marine protected areas as an EBFM tool.

This book analyses the law-making of ecosystem-based fisheries management in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction as a post-development of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) so as to avoid stocks collapse and destruction of critical habitats, and increase the resilience of marine ecosystems.
