The Estai (Spanish trawler) was seized March 9, 1995, outside Canada's 200-nautical-mile coastal limit. The captain was charged with contravening a new federal law that allows Canada to enforce conservation measures in waters bordering Canada's territorial limit.

CONT

On sait par ailleurs que la Convention de 1982, en son article 62(2), ne règle que de façon imparfaite la question de la gestion des stocks halieutiques chevauchant la zone économique exclusive d'un État et la haute mer proprement dite. Le Canada est en particulier très affecté par la surpêche étrangère au-delà de sa zone de 200 milles. Il a ainsi adopté une Loi modifiant la Loi sur la protection des pêcheries côtières et soumis à arrestation le 26 juillet deux navires américains qui se livraient à la pêche aux pétoncles au-delà de ses 200 milles.
