Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the adoption of the agreement for the implementation of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982 relating to the conservation and management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks. The Agreement is built on three essential pillars. First, it sets out principles on which conservation and management of the stocks must be based and establishes that such management must be based on the precautionary approach and the best available scientific information. The second pillar ensures that the conservation and management measures are adhered to and complied with, and that they are not undermined by those who fish for the stocks. The third pillar is the provision for peaceful settlement of disputes.
