The purposes of this article are to analyze the enforcement provisions of the FCMA, to compare them with the terms of prior United States fisheries legislation, and to consider the probable shape of the enforcement program under the new law. Where appropriate, consideration will be given to parallel foreign developments as well as the possible interaction with the Revised Single Negotiating Text distributed at the end of the New York session of the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea in May 1976. In several instances, the need for corrective legislation, which is apparently being addressed within the Executive Branch, will be noted.
