Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews some recent efforts to develop a model for improved governance of international fisheries by regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs). It begins with a brief history of the development of international cooperation in the conservation and management of fisheries. The chapter summaries the main contributions made in this regard by the Fish Stocks Agreement. After briefly reviewing the discussions that led to the 2006 General Assembly resolution on sustainable fisheries, the chapter then describes one initiative taken by a group of states and non-governmental organisations to implement the resolution by developing a set of recommended best practices to be applied by RFMOs. The chapter ends with describing some thoughts on how these recommended best practices could be promoted and applied through the medium of performance reviews.

Keywords: fish stocks agreement; non-governmental organisations; regional fisheries management organization (RFMO)
