Abstract

This amicus brief discusses how, under domestic law, the President can establish national monuments, pursuant to the Antiquities Act, in the ocean. It focuses on the seabed's status as "land owned or controlled by the federal government" under U.S. law, as the Antiquities Act requires, and on the President's authority to regulate fishing within marine national monuments.

Keywords: Northeast Canyons and Seamounts, marine national monument, Antiquities Act, continental shelf, EEZ, seabed, marine ecosystems
