UN Fish Stocks Agreement strengthens the framework for conservation and management of those stocks by regional fisheries management organizations. Secretariat´s Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea (DOALOS) provide advice, studies, assistance and research on the implementation of the Law of the Sea Convention, on issues of a general nature, and on specific developments relating to the legal regime for the oceans, provide service to all the fora and support to the organizations of the UN system and provide training and fellowships.
