Chapter Summary

Under Article 118, States whose nationals harvest identical living resources on the high seas are obliged to cooperate to take measures to conserve and manage these resources and to establish subregional or regional fisheries organisations to this end. States can give effect to their duty to cooperate either by establishing and becoming members of subregional or regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) or by agreeing to apply the conservation and management measures of such organisations. In addition to establishing regional fisheries organisations as "vehicles for good fishery governance", the role of such organisations, particularly those with management functions as vehicles for the development and implementation of sustainable fisheries management principles to combat IUU fishing has been recognised since the inception of the IPOA-IUU.
