26-02-2008

Although the creation of the Ecological and Fisheries Protection Zone (ZERP) by Croatia is justified as a fisheries resources management measure, its scope goes further than this. There are interferences with border disputes that are serious obstacles to concluding technical agreements. The question of the ZERP has become a priority in the negotiations for the accession of Croatia to European Union.
