TREATIES AFFECTING THE NORTHEASTERN FISHERIES

The Tariff Commission has released a report covering treaties, agreements, and international arbitration awards affecting the activities of United States fishermen along the Northern Atlantic coasts of North America.

The term northeastern fisheries" is used for brevity in the report to refer to
fisheries along or near the northern Atlantic coast of North America, particularly
those along or near the coasts of Canada, Newf oundland, and Labrador. The term
"treaties" is used in the title for convenience, but the report covers not only
treaties proper, but also international executive agreements and awards of arbitra-
tion tribunals.

[ocr errors]

From the time of the settlement of North America, the northeastern fisheries have been an important industry and have played an important part in international relations. They have been a source of recurrent disputes between nations and the subject of numerous treaties, agreements, and arbitration awards. Before the Revolution and since, the New England fishermen have had a large share in the northeastern fisheries; most of the disputes have concerned their activities. Probably no other industry of the United States has figured so prominently in international relations as our northeastern fisheries,

[merged small][ocr errors]

In this report, the Commission has undertaken to present the substance of the
various treaties, agreements, and awards which have had important effects on the
fisheries of American vessels in these northeastern waters. Included also are the
salient facts regarding the origin of the various disputes, their importance, and
the methods employed in dealing with them. The objective has been not so much to
describe the treaties and other documents as to discuss their effects on the industry.
The relation between the United States tariff on fish and on other products of Canada
and Newfoundland and the fishery problems is also discussed.

Al though almost all of the basic material has been available in published reports
and documents of the Department of State and at the Library of Congress, here tofore no
one official document has presented the substance of the treaties, agreements, and awards
toge ther with their effect on the fisheries. In the belief that such a document may fur-
nish useful background for the consideration of our post-war fishery problems, the com
mission has issued the report.
