"In the absence of an ICZN ruling"? Does this mean that the rules on
this point aren't automatic and questions like this are decided by the
equivalent of a judge's court ruling?
For that matter, could you or someone point me to a publication or
perhaps an online site where I can find at least the basic rules by
which the ICZN operates?
