Title:Nigeria's exclusive economic zone
Author:Okere, B. Obinna
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:territorial waters
Abstract:Economic considerations are playing an increasingly preeminent role in orienting the course of International Law of the Sea and the concept of exclusive economic zone, which recognizes a coastal State's sovereignty over the resources of the sea adjacent to it's coasts rather than over the zone itself, testifies to this economic primacy. The exclusive economic zone, the territorial sea, the contiguous zone and the continental shelf are not coterminous in extent or essence. Nigeria's Exclusive Economic Zone Act 1978 has full force and effect as a law duly passed within the Nigerian legal system. It has remained faithful to the general framework and purport of the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III) Draft Convention. Notes, ref.
