Abstract:

The book contains the texts of twenty professional papers, as well as shorter statements by panel participants, and considerable verbatim discussions. Starting with the theme of the need for rules and rights in the use of the sea, the proceedings then go on to consideration of existing fisheries arrangements and their implications, conflicts of uses in the sea, and alternative regimes for the sea, ending with a discussion on the future development of world fisheries. In this latter connection, considerable attention was paid to the problems of U.S. jurisdiction over its fisheries resources beyond the twelve- mile limit.
