The Turbot War

I clearly remember the Turbot Scandal, but had no idea it was an actual war.  Fantastically nerdy.

Even nerdier was this little tidbit, which I love:

Territorial seas have changed over time, having begun with a 3 nautical mile 6 km “cannon shot” territorial sea, followed by the long standing extension to a 12 nautical mile 22 km standard.
