Chapter Summary

As the Arctic region warms, the range and distribution of at least some fish stocks that occur in sub-Arctic regions will likely extend or move into more northerly areas. New or additional fishing effort will likely follow. Interested nations and stakeholders should begin preparing to conserve and manage future Arctic fisheries. The international community has developed a widely accepted set of norms and standards for the conservation and management of marine fisheries and their impacts on marine ecosystems, including relevant provisions of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and other related international instruments. The United States has already taken some initiatives in this area. In 2008, President Bush signed a Joint Resolution on Arctic Fisheries calling for engagement with other nations toward the development of multilateral fisheries management arrangements for the Arctic.
