Establishing exclusive fishing zones
Synonyms: Declaring fishing zones
Implementation: The widespread introduction in the mid-seventies of exclusive economic zones (EEZs) and the adoption in 1982, after long deliberations, of the [United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea] provided a new framework for the better management of marine resources. The new legal regime of the ocean gave coastal states rights and responsibilities for the management and use of fishery resources within their EEZs which embrace some 90 percent of the world's marine fisheries.
