Fishing Wars

KBCZ Foundation

The KBCZ was originally sponsored by Faneria, Brumalea, and Kiravia as a joint icebreaking and fisheries protection ring immediately after the Nordska Fishing Wars, but the concept was adopted readily by the governments of Caergwynn and Fiannria, which joined in 1981 after the initiative to create a maritime organization began. In an unexpected turnaround, the member nations agreed that the permanent seat of the Zone should be at the crux of the two seas it helped manage, and Caergwynn was allowed to host the KBCZ's headquarters in _______.


Vithinja, which had not been a member nation in 1981, applied for entry in ---- and was admitted in July of ----. THe vote to allow Vithinja


Voting and Management

Staff from member nations manage the Kilikas-Boreal International Maritime Coordination Center in ____ (HQ location), relaying navigation, hazard, and emergency information between member nations.


The Zone, in addition to its other roles, plays a significant part in icebreaking and tugging assistance in the Arctic and subarctic circles, and draws on available support ships from member nations to do so, and this often overlaps with the Zone's role as a disaster relief coordinator.
