Combating illegal and unauthorized fishing: an assessment of contemporary practice

Chapter


Abstract


  • The emergence of the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the 1970s placed

    potentially vast areas under national jurisdiction. From a regime of relatively

    modest territorial seas close to the coast as the only basis of fisheries jurisdiction

    for States, suddenly the international community embraced a new form of

    jurisdiction over resources that extended to fisheries up to zoo nautical miles

    from land. This extension brought over one third of the world's oceans under

    national jurisdiction, or more importantly, approximately ninety percent of

    the world's wild fish catch.
