For 1976, Japan harvested more fish than any other nation, but was closely seconded by the Soviet Union. Both countries needed ocean regimes that would secure wide exclusive fishery zones off their coasts and guarantee their traditional fishery rights within the same zones off the coasts of other countries. The current negotiations between Japan and the Soviet Union on the amount of catch by Japanese within the Soviet Union's 200-mile zone and by the Soviet Union within the Japanese 200-mile zone are very complex. They involve territorial questions over four islands (Etorofu, Kunashiri, Shikotan, and the Habomai group) northeast of Hokkaido, Japan, which have been occupied by the Soviet Union since the end of World War II. When the Soviets declared their 200-mile zone, Japan did not agree to Soviet fishing jurisdiction over the 200-mile zone surrounding these islands. In order to secure its traditional interests in fishing within the extensive 200-mile lines, including the disputed islands, Japan had to agree to the Soviet lines with a proviso that territorial questions would be separated from fishing rights. This thesis examines the recent history of the Japanese-Soviet fishery negotiations, with particular reference to territorial disputes as well as the influence of foreign policy issues and future problems are discussed.

With startling revelations,Tsuyoshi Hasegawa rewrites the standard history of the end of World War II in the Pacific.
