Chapter Summary

France and Norway were the first to create exclusive economic zones (EEZs) in the North Sea, but the substantive jurisdiction was confined at first to fisheries. This chapter considers how fishing and some related activities in the EEZ provided for in the Convention and also how they are being regulated in the practice of states. The principal regulator of activities concerning natural resources in the EEZ is the coastal state. The terms of the Convention recognise extensive rights, as well as some duties, on the part of the coastal state in respect of the natural resources of the EEZ. The legal consequences of bunkering were considered in Saiga Cases. In 1997 and again in 1999, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea was called upon to consider certain issues in the case of the Saiga, a tank vessel flying the flag o St Vincent.
