Marine Resources and Legal-Political Arrangements for Their Development; Volume 3, Panel Reports of the Commission on Marine Science, Engineering and Resources.
Commission on Marine Science, Engineering and Resources, Washington, DC.
The Marine Resources Panel addressed itself to three tasks: describing the current rate of exploration and exploitation of marine resources and the physical, economic, and legal conditions under which they are produced; identifying deterrents to development and efficient utilization of marine resources; and recommending programs that will remove the deterrents, thereby stimulating exploitation of marine resources. The topics assessed in this manner include fisheries, mineral resources, oil and gas, fresh water from marine resources, direct power from the sea, and recreation. The report of the International Panel concentrated upon those problems which were thought most important to the advancement of the objectives of the Marine Resources and Engineering Development Act of 1966. This report includes guides to U.S. policy, summary of principal recommendations and an international legal-political framework for exploring and exploiting the mineral resources underlying the high seas, exploiting the living resources of the high seas, conducting scientific inquiry in the oceans, and controlling the oceans. Alternative international legal-political frameworks are developed for exploring and exploiting the mineral resources of the deep seas and exploiting the living resources of the high seas. (BB)
