Enforcement practices stemming from international laws governing commercial and research activities in the ocean are reviewed in this study conducted at the University of Washington for the U.S. Department of State. The authors examine current international law with respect to enforcement of laws for fisheries, marine pollution, navigation, research, continental shelf development, and deep seabed hard mineral mining. Extended consideration is given to proposals for revision at the third U.N. Law of the Sea Conference in Geneva, including the Informal Single Negotiating Text produced in May 1975. Further, the authors recommend policy changes. Appendixes describe marine pollution treaties and list marine treaties on fishery enforcement. Previous studies have investigated limited aspects of international enforcement practices, but this is the first comprehensive study to be published on the subject. Because of the timeliness and comprehensiveness of its contents, the book will be a useful reference to those interested in current LOS negotiations.
