Conflicts at sea over fisheries is a rising concern. We provide a brief overview of fisheries conflicts, including typologies, escalation patterns, and prevention/resolution mechanisms. We briefly discuss specific case studies associated with territorial disputes, climate change impacts, environmental activism, and the militarization of fishing fleets and enforcement.
