The Convention results with both negative and positive consequences for coastal states. The positive aspects of the Convention are acquiering large amount of marine natural resources, improvement of scientific research, as well as economic and commercial profit. The negative aspects are territorial conflicts and excessive abuse of natural resources. However, the major issues are permanent alteration of the Convention itself, and the fact that it has not been addopted by all coastal states. The most far-reaching part of the Convention is the Exclusive Economic Zone that the States Parties have the right to proclame as fishing zone, although it has not been regulated by the Convention. The alteration of this part of the Convention defeates the basic idea of the Convention on freedom of navigation, and the solution should be sought in the mutual agreement and understanding of all parties in conflict. Negative aspects have been experienced in the conflict between Croatia and Slovenia, as well as between France and Spain. Mutual agreements should prevent such conflicts from happening in the future.
