Chapter Summary

A key achievement of the United Nations Convention in the Law of the Sea (LOSC) was the definition of clear spatial limits for national claims to maritime jurisdiction, something that, notably, had eluded earlier codification efforts. This chapter examines the EEZ to determine whether the rights accorded by this status are implicit or a logical development of the concept. It explains that Benthic Indicators for Monitoring the Ecosystem of the Barents Sea (ECOBAR project) is an ecosystem approach that focuses on the benthos, which they believe is the best habitat for assessing impacts of most human activities in the marine environment and has been an important component of many aquatic monitoring programs. David Freestone focuses on the activities of the UN General Assembly in the adoption of resolutions addressing the problem of destructive fishing practices and biodiversity.

Keywords: biodiversity; destructive fishing practices; Ecosystem of the Barents Sea (ECOBAR); EEZ; maritime jurisdiction; UN General Assembly
