writes for The Arctic Institute: Commercial fishing is banned across much of the Arctic under the agreement signed in Greenland in 2018, closing access to a vast area of the sea that is opening up under climate change. However, Russia possesses a significant Exclusive Economic Zone prescribed by the 1982 United Nations Convention On The Law Of The Sea (UNCLOS) over which the country has special rights regarding the exploration and use of resources. This area extends 200 nautical miles from the territorial sea baseline, including the continental shelf.
