Abstract : Under pressure of more intensive and diverse uses, the legal principle of 'Freedom of Access' to marine resources is no longer sufficient to regulate man's activities in the marine environment. An analysis of the factors which must be considered in designing a workable regime for the future exploitation of the ocean was conducted. Oceanographic as well as political and economic factors are examined, and alternative solutions evaluated as to their ability to satisfy various interests and objective considerations. A recommended formula for the delimitation of coastal state jurisdiction in ocean space and a proposed structure for an International Ocean Authority to regulate activities in the area beyond national jurisdiction are advanced.
