Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with an assessment of the situation and the significance of the Sea of Okhotsk fisheries. It addresses the unilateral measures taken by the Russian Federation regarding fisheries in the Sea of Okhotsk and the developments involving the Russian Federation and the interested states. Also, the Russian submissions concerning the regime of straddling stocks made during the Fish Stocks Conference are analysed and compared to the subsequent negotiating texts and the Fish Stocks Agreement. Further, the legal arguments of the Russian Federation are evaluated against the relevant rules of international law. The chapter concludes by identifying the linkages of the regime for fisheries in the Sea of Okhotsk to other regimes and suggests how this regime may further develop.
