This Comment analyzes the present dilemma of the United States ocean mining industry. The author reviews the detrimental effects of a forthcoming Law of the Sea treaty on the ocean mining industry and discusses the inadequacy of the protections offered by Congress against these effects. The author further stresses the economic and political importance of deep seabed mining to the United States and concludes by suggesting that Congress provide further incentive for U.S. industry to proceed with ocean mining.
