Abstract
Marine justice proves narratively infertile when it comes to the deep sea. An idea of how to successfully bundle global justice and earth system protection––the central global sustainability formula––into narratives is especially hard to come up with in the case of the remote ocean floor. The case is not as special as it seems though. Rather it exemplifies general challenges experienced by sustainability (i.e., global and intergenerational justice) narratives with regard to: (1) The per definition ‘localist’ character of successful story-telling, (2) Their inherent value tension between innovation and conservation (3) The anthropocentric nature of any conventional narrative dynamics (Ghosh, 2016).
