Le premier avis de la formation plenière du tribunal international du droit de la mer : entre prudence et audace

Abstract : On 28 March 2013, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea received a request from the Sub-Regional Fisheries Commission to render an Advisory Opinion on questions related to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities. The ITLOS delivered its opinion on 2 April 2015. The latter is of special relevance in at least two respects. First, ITLOS states unambiguously that the full Court has jurisdiction to provide an Advisory Opinion. This clarification was expected in so far as the United Nations convention on the law of the Sea only grants advisory jurisdiction to the Deep Seabed Disputes Chamber and not to the full Tribunal. Second, the Tribunal provided substantive clarifications with regard to the rights and obligations of the costal state and the flag state in IUU fishing activities. These clarifications are welcomed and should reinforce the fight against this scourge.
