International Ocean Law Relations Between the United States and Canada

Ted L McDorman

  • Addresses the controversy over the international legal status of and navigational rights that exist within the United States and Canada
  • Analyzes the fisheries and maritime boundary dispute in the Gulf of Maine region between Maine and Nova Scotia/New Brunswick that arose in the 1970s
  • "This book also addresses the difficulties between Canada and the United States in reaching agreement and management arrangements respecting Pacific salmon that has a negotiating history back to the 1930s but, as a result of 200 nautical mile zones and differing assessments of national interests and interpretation of treaty wording, caused serious difficulties in the1980s and 1990s and may emerge again as an issue in the near future"
