Chapter Summary

On 4th September 2000, the coastal states and distant-water fishing nations of the tuna fisheries of the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) adopted the Convention on the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (hereafter the WCPO tuna convention, or simply 'the Convention'). This chapter provides a brief background of the regional tuna fisheries, before analysing the negotiation and substantive content of the WCPO tuna convention. This is followed by a discussion on the activities of the preparatory conference in setting the stage for the working of the Commission. The convention area of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) is defined by its Article 3.
