The San Diego Law Review symposium contains some very thoughtful comments with respect to the validity under international law of the mining claim made by Deepsea Ventures, Inc. and the factors affecting United States policy toward negotiations of the regime for highly migratory species, and the effect that a 200-mile economic resource zone could have on the American tuna industry; the complex questions involved in attempting to create a regime for archipelagos consistent with the interests of the world community in protecting freedom of navigation and the development of the doctrine of innocent passage and its effect on the legality of reprisal by the United States in the Mayaguez incident. In summary, the editors of the San Diego Law Review have produced a stimulating symposium at a critical time int he law of the sea negotiations.
