Chapter Summary

In the view of the FAO, the management of both straddling and shared stocks remains one of the great challenges on the way towards achieving long-term sustainable fisheries. This chapter provides a small contribution to raising awareness of the shortcomings in the management of shared stocks, and to suggest some ways in which these shortcomings might be addressed. After setting out a typology of shared stocks, the chapter will survey the issues involved in the management of shared stocks and the shortcomings of article 63(1). The chapter also argues that the main provision of the Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention dealing with the management of shared fish stocks, article 63(1), is inadequate and needs to be supplemented. In this sense the issue of the management of shared stocks could be said to be "unresolved".

Keywords: article 63(1); FAO; LOS Convention; sustainable fisheries
