In November 2016, the Korea Coast Guard published the “Manual for the Use of Weapons” in response to the sometimes violent resistance of Chinese fishing vessels to the law enforcement activities of the Korea Coast Guard. This article looks at this manual, the possible uses of crew-served weapons, and the international legal precedents for the use of force at sea.
