Jurisdictional waters in the Mediterranean and Black Seas

15-12-2009

Due to their geographical features, maritime jurisdictions in the Mediterranean and Black Seas are particularly complex. The number of states and their relative positions create new boundaries that impact on coastal states’ and third countries’ access to use of the living resources. This study describes and analyses the jurisdictional structure of these two basins and the possible impacts on fishing activity.
