This article deals with the concept of the Exclusive Fishery Zone (EFZ) which has long existed in the state practice in the law of the sea. It describes the genesis and development of the concept, attempts by coastal states to gain extensive and exclusive control over fishery resources beyond the territorial sea, and the influence of international conferences and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea on EFZs. The main aim of this article is to examine current claims to EFZs, describe the legal nature of contemporary EFZs and analyse the motivation of coastal states for still claiming an EFZ and not an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), which is a multi-functional zone that includes not only exclusive fishing rights of the coastal state but also other rights, jurisdiction and economic activities.
