Abstract

This study examines the international law on access to maritime ports, in particular, in relation to the right to deny access to foreign fishing vessels, especially in response to overfishing and the undermining of conservation measures. The first part surveys the general principles of international law, international conventions, state practice, the resolutions of international organizations and diplomatic conferences and the opinions of distinguished legal experts, to come to the determination that coastal states have a sovereign right to regulate and even to deny access to their maritime ports. The second part considers the arguments that have been advanced against such a right, concluding that the objections are unfounded.
