Regional Arrangements in Ocean Affairs
Fleet Analysis and Support Division, Office of Naval Research, 1977 - Fisheries - 664 pages
The regional approach to the management of such forms of ocean use as fishing, scientific research and environmental control is gradually gaining acceptance, and it would seem essential for the United States continuously to assess this marine regionalist trend. Changes are likely to occur as a result of the virtually universal adoption by coastal states within the next few years of an exclusive economic zone extending up to 200 nautical miles from shore. One result may be the emergence of various types of restrictive regional regimes, covering the combined economic zones of neighboring states. Within such regimes, the fishing, scientific, military and other vessels of non-littoral countries may be excluded, or have their traditional activities severely curtailed. This condition may be particularly prevalent in the case of semi-enclosed seas and other narrow water bodies which are enclosed by the exclusive economic zones of their coastal states.
