FISHERIES ISSUES IN THE YELLOW SEA AND THE EAST CHINA SEA

An in-depth analysis of the various political, economic, and technological influences on the Yellow Sea and East China Sea fisheries is given. The author traces the development of the fisheries in light of the evolution of fishery relations between the different coastal states. The author concludes that a unilateral agreement between the coastal states is needed if the fisheries are to be regulated. At this time, all coastal states involved (China, Korea, and Japan) differ radically in their maritime practices. No present treaty is binding on all the states, and no state is a party to all of the four present treaties. The author emphazises the necessity of a regional arrangement to preserve the fisheries from depletion, and pollution hazards.
