Abstract

On October 26, 1984, a new United States-Canada boundary drawn by the International Court of Justice went into effect, replacing the overlapping 200-mile fishery zones in the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank established by both countries in 1976. It has excluded Maine fishermen and lobstermen from some of their best bottoms. The biggest effects have been on the large boats.
