Chapter Summary

The Joint Russian-Norwegian Fisheries Commission manages some of the most valuable fish stocks in Arctic waters. The Commission was established by Norway and the Soviet Union in 1976 to accommodate the two countries' obligations under the evolving Law of the Sea (LOS) regime. This chapter gives a presentation of the regime, especially its operations since the mid-1990s. It is divided into four main parts. The first part describes the structure and allocation principles of the regime. The second part discusses the regime's material principles, especially the introduction of the precautionary approach from the late 1990s. The third part analyses procedural principles, focusing on transparency and stakeholder participation; and finally the chapter presents provisions for compliance and enforcement.
