Chapter Summary

This chapter explores how human rights issues relate to national legislation in the fisheries sector. There are two principal aspects. First, we need to identify those human rights issues which you would expect to find covered in fisheries legislation, usually because they are required by international law, in particular, the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOS Convention), or the 1995 United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement, or the FAO Compliance Agreement. Second, we need to indicate what other human rights issues underlie fisheries legislation. In some countries, these are specifically dealt with in the fisheries law, in others, they are not. While the subject of human rights is widely explored in both national law and international law, there has been little attention paid to its specific application to fisheries. The chapter seeks to fill this gap in the area of legislation in the fisheries sector.

Keywords: fisheries legislation; human rights; international law; LOS Convention
