Coastal State Regulation of International Shipping

Lindy S. Johnson

A Oceana TM Publication

The conflict between a coastal state's interest in regulating navigation off its coast and ship owners' interest in limiting such regulation is an old yet ongoing one. This work addresses international shipping from the perspective of coastal states and their desire to protect their resources and marine environment from damage by international shipping. This book reviews the provisions of the 1982 U.N. Law of the Sea Convention with regard to the actions a coastal state may take to regulate international shipping.
