Marine Law vs. Fisheries Law

Marine law—also known as maritime or admirality law—brings together the laws, conventions, and treaties governing sea-based private business and related nautical matters. Fisheries law, which studies and analyzes fisheries management approaches, is a specialized area rarely taught at law schools; our interest in fisheries law makes our practice unique.
