Law of the Sea

The United States recently signed the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). This will provide international rights regarding 12-mile offshore territorial limits for all nations, and 200-mile exclusive economic zones for fishing and other activities. The administration had successfully negotiated revisions to the provisions on international control of deep seabed mining, the portion which had precluded an earlier signing.

Hawai'i-based Law of the Sea Institute (LOST) is a nongovernmental forum for discussing issues related to deep-sea mining and other areas. LOST is located at the University of Hawaii School of Law.
