The Panel on the Law of Ocean Uses was founded in 1983 to monitor developments in international ocean law. Its members are specialists in ocean law and policy, resource economics, and the marine sciences. They review and evaluate the law and practice of the United States and of other nations, as they affect the evolution of international ocean law. This report contains an overview statement on “United States Policy Regarding the Law of the Sea”; and five more detailed papers on navigation rights, fisheries law, the outer continental shelf, maritime shipping and the protection of the marine environment, and marine scientific research issued by the Panel.
