This doctoral research examines the nature and extent of coastal State jurisdiction over living resources in the exclusive economic zone under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. While coastal States have ‘sovereign rights’ to explore and exploit, conserve and manage the living resources of the exclusive economic zone, the nature and extent of these sovereign rights – and the way in which coastal States may employ them – is not well understood, and in practice coastal States have found creative ways to expand the geographic and substantive reach of their authority. Since this ‘creeping’ jurisdiction has evolved through incremental practice, there has been no comprehensive analysis of this important aspect of coastal State regulation. This research will address this gap, analysing the exercise of coastal State powers in the context of the rules-based international order to ascertain the legitimate extent of coastal State jurisdiction over the living resources of the exclusive economic zone in contemporary international law.
