Summary: The international law and commercial law regulation of the relationships on the sea and seaboard, the relationships in tourism,seabed mineral resources exploitation, sea fishing and hunting being included, as well as protecting, preserving and promoting the marine environment are a matter of special importance for the Republic of Croatia because,in addition to its Adriatic Sea oriented official policy, it possesses the longest coast and almost all of the islands in the east part of the Adriatic. The legislation of other countries, especially those within the EEC, the practice of the judiciary (national as well as international), standards and custom are all of major significiance and have to be studied to provide grounds for a synthetic approach in creating our own jurisprudence and legal practice.

Keywords: internationl law of the sea, pacific settlement of international disputes, maritime law, commercial law

Research goals: The main objective of the research is the scientific cognition of the contemporary International Law of the Sea, contractual and customary, as well as of the modern Commercial Law and Tourism Law related to utilization of the resources of the sea (fishing, exploitation of oil and gas, utilization of sea energy for power supply, etc.) and management of the tourism on the Adriatic. The results of the research will, of course, advance our jurisprudence, and, at the same time, will provide scientific base for normative regulation of the relations on the Adriatic Sea and its foreshore. We find it especially important to examine the effects of declaring the economic zone in the Adriatic Sea (delimitation of the sea among the Adriatic states), rights and duties of the coastal states as well as the rights and duties of other countries in that zone. The research is very important for the Republic of Croatia, being that the largest part of the sea along the eastern Adriatic coast and almost all of the islands lie within its boundaries. Equally important we consider studying the legal regulation of fishing and hunting, exploitation of mineral resources in the sea bed and subsoil, tourism, primarily in the Adriatic.
