  • Alternative Title:
    The Precautionary Principle in North Pacific Groundfish Management
  • Description:
    During the past 10 years, the precautionary principle has emerged as an increasingly popular concept which has has been applied to the areas of environmental law and resource management on both a national and international level. The precautionary principle was first referred to in an official setting at the Second International Conference on the Protection of the North Sea, held in London in 1987. Regulation of marine pollution was the subject, and the precautionary principle was advanced in an attempt to shift the burden of proof from the regulatory authority to the polluter. Basically, the precautionary principle holds that the existence of scientific uncertainty regarding the precise effects of human activities on the natural environment constitutes legitimate grounds for constraining such activities rather than for pursuing them.
